Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: It's a fairly good melodrama, nothing more.
Fresh: Howard Hawks's stirring tale of a fledgling airmail service that traverses the Andes from a strip in a South American banana port is the ultimate workplace dramedy.
Fresh: Pure cinematic catnip.
Fresh: This is the quintessential Hawks movie, combining spectacular aerial sequences with the fatalistic barroom machismo of the pilots off duty.
Wonderful acting and story! Grant mesmerizes, in my TOP 5 of favs. Worth seeing over and over again!
Hard Story About The Dangers of Flight
A different role for Grant; a hard headed flight service director in South America. Jean Arthur is the fish out of water American that falls for him and Rita Hayworth has a stunning cameo. It's a strange story that makes more sense as the films goes on but still doesn't totally satisfy in the end.
Angels have wings
It was go. There has been movies made in the 80' s that had the same type of falling in love too quick. There isn't original idea
