A lavish and painstakingly authentic WWI drama that was, at the time, the most expensive movie ever made. Ben Lyon and James Hall are brothers at Oxford who join the British Air Corps when war breaks out, and Jean Harlow, in her starring debut, is the temptress who comes between them. Spectacular flying sequences (including one featuring stunt work by producer/co-scripter/co-director Howard Hughes) highlight the film. 131 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono; Subtitles: Spanish, French.

My Comments: Ever wonder where the term "Hell's Angels' came from? You might be surprised of the connections between this movie, its producer and the term and men who 'ride' under their colors today....
