Dir. Howard Hawks. 1936, 95 mins., 35mm print from The Library of Congress. With James Cagney, Pat O’Brien, June Travis. In one of his strongest roles, James Cagney plays “Dizzy” Davis, an experienced but irresponsible aviator whose sex drive gets him into trouble when he falls for a younger pilot’s girlfriend (June Travis). This absorbing aviation film inspired critic Frank S. Nugent to write, “This once give Hollywood its due: it has given wings to a play about aviation.”
