In Java during the darkest days of World War II, an American pilot takes off in his squads only air-worthy plane. His mission: drop the 500-pound bomb strapped to his planes fuselage on a Japanese aircraft carrier. As he wings toward certain death, the airmen left behind share their comrades life story - a stirring tale of love, ambition, political corruption and personal redemption. Part of Hollywoods war effort, this memorable programmer captures Americas can-do spirit during the fight against worldwide fascism. Franchot Tone starts as the heroic pilot, and Gene Kelly makes his dramatic debut as one of the men left behind, a brash hothead who knew the doomed pilot best. Van Johnson, Kellys pal since they worked together in Broadways Pal Joey, has a featured role. The crisp, muscular direction is compliments of George Sidney, who would go on to direct Kelly in Thousands Cheer, Anchors Aweigh and The Three Musketeers.
