On a transcontinental flight from New York City to Los Angeles, Joan Lawson, the flight hostess, attracts the attention of a move producer, Dave Miller, and he tries to persuade her to sign a movie contract. She declines, as she is in love with the pilot, Neil Bradshaw, and desires to learn to fly under his tuition. The airplane, because of unfavorable flying conditions, is grounded in L.A, but a passenger, movie star Diane Andre, insists that Neil start for New York, despite the weather. "Spud" Johnson, publicity director for the airline, sees publicity and exploitation possibilities and orders Neil to take up the airplane.

His natural charisma
8 January 2013 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Bruce Cabot and Beatrice Roberts star in this B picture comedy/romance about a pilot and a stewardess with ambitions to be a pilot. Both of them get sidetracked in their romance when Roberts is offered a Hollywood contract and Cabot actually gets one.

Before becoming a commercial airline pilot, Cabot was a stunt flier and during a publicity stunt when he agrees to fly movie star Astrid Allwyn to the East Coast. They're forced down and are missing for a couple of days. When they turn up alive Cabot's natural charisma comes forth on the newsreels and he gets to star opposite Allwyn in an aviation picture.

All of which is too much for Roberts who even drops playboy Bill Elliott from courting her on the rebound to take up his father's offer to fly from Los Angeles to Manila solo.

I can't say more other than Cabot's alpha male ego is bruised and he does something about it.

Allwyn who is best known for playing Claude Rains daughter in Mr. Smith Goes To Washington gives a nice turn as an egotistical movie star. Something I'm sure she saw a great deal of in her career.

This is a pleasant enough film and no doubt Roberts might have been the inspiration for Doris Day in Julia and Karen Black in Airport 75.
