(out of 5)

First Academy Award winner for Best Picture is a rip-roaring adventure of the skies that has rival suitors  and  forget their differences once they enlist and become friends during their many missions together as fighter pilots.  plays the girl back home who loves Rogers, even though he’s still obsessed with Arlen’s girlfriend. The setup of this exciting melodrama was cliched even in 1927, but the flying scenes are completely breathtaking. Look for matinee idol  in a cameo role as a doomed pilot.
