Kehr’s Weekly Recap: Air Force (1943)

Air Force (1943)

The story of a bomber and its crew, buffeted through most of the major battles of the first weeks of the Pacific war. In this 1943 propaganda film, Howard Hawks finds a perfect vehicle for his study of the male group. William Faulkner polished the dialogue, but as a silent it would still be tremendously exciting and evocative. Recommended. 124 min.
