Ralph Graves, Jack Holt - Flight

The first flying talkie, and one of the best of the air pictures. A tale of marine corps fliers in Florida and Nicaragua, with a romance involving Jack Holt, Ralph Graves and Lila Lee. Holt is fine as a hardboiled flier, but honors go to Harold Goodwin, as a young airman. The air shots are grand, and credit goes to Frank Capra for direction and dialogue.
