Few filmmakers were as fascinated by the dynamics of the group as Hawks, and this glorious mix of drama, comedy, spectacle and romantic adventure – depicting the dangers and sense of shared purpose experienced by a bunch of fliers transporting mail and medicines in the Andes – is one of his greatest achievements. When dealing with death the film’s rich emotional palette attains an extraordinary delicacy.
