    American flyer Ty Power joins the RAF to impress choris girl who is civil defence volunteer Grable. He gets caught up in the real life and death fight to save England. The two stars were at the top of their popularity during the war years-Grable the most famous pinup girl of that time. A movie that isn't shown to death and would have been an excellent choice to include in 2014 Memorial Day marathon.

    Yank in the RAF provided movie fans with a dynamite combo. It features WII's favorite Pinup, Betty Grable and the enormously popular and handsome star (and experienced pilot) Tyrone Power in the same picture. The war certainly played into the heightened sense of danger as any of the Flyboys vying for Betty's attention, Power included, might have to make the ultimate sacrifice once they were in the air. On the ground, romantic pursuits were on everyone's mind. A nostalgic combination of glamorous stars and the 1940s version of the battle of the sexes set against the high drama, real heroism and the emotionalism of the War. Something of a relic now, but a good reminder of what WWII movie goers were watching. Tasty nostalgic treat for classic film lover's.

    WOW..... Betty Grable, Ty Power and the RAF. What a great movie. Caught this flick in 1941 and also in later years. It's still a 5 star movie to-day. Film making has improved 100%, so don't be to critical of the 40's. Remember , it's just a movie. The cast was also superb. Who new Betty would marry Harry James some years later. See ya at the movies, and go easy on the pop corn.

    How anyone could review this movie in this day and age without commenting on the severely outdated sexual politics is beyond me. And how TCM and their otherwise sage hosts could introduce this movie on-air without commenting on the same is irresponsible. One scene in particular is highly disturbing, and several others disconcerting. Regardless of how good-looking Power may have been at this time, Grable's masochism at his hands is a hard pill to swallow, even taking into account the different mores of that time. Her behavior is certainly the type of behavior which leads women into very unhappy and tragic lives, and I believe it is a tremendously important point to acknowlege. All of the vintage flying scenes in the world don't make up for this, and this film should be made an example. Not necessarily of a war propaganda film with some notable flying scenes, but as all that women had to endure in our previous American lives.NO STARS.

  • Oh those million-dollar gams!

    and that face, and those lip's and those eye's and them wavy golden lox - what a morale booster.If you are fan of Ty Power and Ms. Grable you'll like this little gem.
