Only Angels Have Wings
Howard Hawks directs a fine A-list cast in this 1939 high-flying drama.
Dir Howard Hawks
With Cary Grant, Jean Arthur, Richard Barthelmess, Rita Hayworth
Grant plays Geoff Carter, boss of an aviation business who, with his colleagues, risks his life to transport mail crates across the Andes in dangerous weather conditions. It’s a macho environment and the stakes are high, yet Howard Hawks delivers on every level in a film that has romance, drama and some impressive air sequences too.
