Dive Bomber

0 Love It

Released just months before the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, this isn't the wartime propaganda effort you'd expect from the title and star, but a tautly handled study of flying-related medical problems in which doc Flynn puts a few hours in the cockpit so he can discover exactly what it is that makes his fellow pilots blackout when they go into a dive. A surefire bet for plane nuts, only moderately engrossing for the rest of us. Rich camerawork courtesy of Technicolor specialists Bert Glennon and Winton C Hoch.
