    After two attempts, I finally did get a DVD copy. The first company took my credit card money, $20, and promptly disappeared. The second "company"--most likely pirates--sent me a very poor quality DVD (probably recorded on an 8086 computer in Sri Lanka) which seems to include the elaborate training sequences that had been eliminated in the second 70's broadcast in Los Angeles. These sequences archive the intense physical and psychological training regimen of our air forces which, when combined with our enormous production, made our victory possible. Unlike our enemies, our Army and Naval aviators served a number of missions, after which they were brought back to the states with their combat-won expertise to train new pilots. I had forgotten how really corn-ball patriotic it was, but not being alive in 1944, I need to bear in mind that it was not necessarily certain that we would win.

    World War 2 is beginning to fade in the nation's memory and this play was so much a part of it's history that it would be ashamed to not be able to retrieve it and show it to this generation of young people who seem not to realize that we too where young and gave them the freedom that they now enjoy.

    My father was one of those pilots who trained in those army camps and my mother went with him until he was sent overseas. When this movie would come on T.V ,they would watch it and remember.There was an abundance of tears and laughs. They are both gone now.This movie reminds me so much of them I wish I could get it on DVD.

  • Why is it never shown?

    I understand before it was made into a film, it was done on stage. I recall seing a copy of the stage play script. I saw it twice on Southern California T.V. stations in the 70s. The first time it included many excellent and unsurpassed details of flight training, which were excerpted from the second showing. I have checked every edition of "Movies on T.V." and "Movies on Video." It was never listed as released for television or for video. I thought that would have been due to the royalty rights of its "all-star" cast, which were relaxed during the war, and tightened afterward.
