World War I + 100
United States | 1930 | Howard Hawks
Richard Barthelmess and Douglas Fairbanks Jr. play veteran WWI flying aces in a British squadron that’s losing many of its ill-trained youngest recruits. Risking reprimand, they decide to take on the Germans themselves. Howard Hawks’ first sound film is an antiwar classic with aerial scenes so good that they were re-used in Edmund Goulding’s 1938 remake of The Dawn Patrol starring Errol Flynn. 35mm print preserved by the Library of Congress. 107 min.
