I was stationed at Hamilton Air Force Base from November of 1966 tillMarch of 1970. The movie starts off with a teletype message coming throughordering the B-17 group to proceed from Hamilton Field California toHickamField Hawaii for two weeks of annual training . I was stationed at thesamebase years later when it was a fighter plane base. I saw lots of oldphotosfrom the days when Flying Fortress B-17's flew off the same runway. Eventhough the special effects are not up to todays standards, I still enjoywatching this movie every time it is on TV . As a military photographer, Ican only imagine what it must have been like to capture the chaos going onthat Sunday morning in 1941. My first two years , I used a Speed Graphicjust like those used back then so I have insight into how they worked .

Howard Hawk's "Air Force" is another in a long list of patriotic filmsabout America's fighting men during World War II that were made toraise the spirits of audiences back home. Stereotypes abound, clichéscome hard and fast, and the hokum flies faster than the planes as aflying fortress on a routine reconnaissance flight from California inearly December 1941 is enmeshed in the Japanese attacks on U.S. Pacificbases. However, despite the requisite sentiment that includes cloyingdeath bed scenes, teary-eyed mothers, and even a stowaway dog, "AirForce" stays on course under Hawk's steady direction and is fairlyentertaining fare. The strong cast, which includes John Garfield, GigYoung, and Arthur Kennedy, is excellent and delivers the uninspireddialog with credibility. Although the considerable talents of theseactors are not taxed, Garfield plays to type as the cynic who rises tohandle the unfolding events, and a mustached Young provides solidsupport as the co-pilot. In addition to the cast, James Wong Howe'sdramatic black and white cinematography is another major asset, andviewers have much time to admire his work with light and shadow duringthe talky episodes that take place within the claustrophobic plane.While there are too many stretches of dialog during the early part ofthe movie, a climactic air/sea battle brings the film to an excitingconclusion. A fine cast, outstanding photography, and a few good actionsequences outweigh the overused plot devices and deliver anentertaining film that will quickly become blurred in memory withdozens of other similar war films made during the mid-1940's.

OK, so this is a war years propaganda, moral boosting, rah rah USA,loaded with technical inaccuracies movie. This is still a very goodfilm. Actually far better than most of it's genre from that period.What I like about it is not that it's a war movie but that it has sucha fine cast and being set in a single interior for much of the film itcomes across more like a good stage play set during combat action ofWorld War II. John Garfield, Gig Young, Harry Carey, George Tobias andArthur Kennedy are among the stellar ensemble cast in a story about thebeginning days of America's entry into World War II. A Hal Wallisproduction with direction by famed Director Howard Hawks. I've probablyseen half of the movies directed by Hawks from his 40 year plusdirectorial career as has most people since he made so many well-knownfilms but in case you may have missed Air Force you should check itout. Dudley Nichols whose screenplay's include Stagecoach, The Bells ofSt. Mary's, Gunga Din, The Big Sky and For Whom The Bell Tolls wasnominated for the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay for the 1943Academy Awards. Author William Faulkner collaborated in rewriting ascene and adding additional dialog. The film's only Academy Award wentto George Amy for Best Film Editing. I think Hawks should have receiveda nomination for direction and the film should have also been nominatedfor cinematography. The large cast probably canceled each other out forany consideration in actor or supporting actor nominations but they puttogether a compelling performance. It's a great human drama. I wouldgive this an 8.5 out of a possible 10 and recommend it.
