USA Today - 03/21/1997
"...Billy Wilder's most underrated film..."

Description by

On May 21, 1927, the world changed. "Lucky Lindy" landed outside Paris and people who previously talked about the limitations of air travel suddenly dreamed of its limitless possibilities. The Spirit of St. Louis is six-time Academy Award winner Billy Wilder's recreation of the struggles and success of Charles A. Lindbergh, the pioneering flyboy who, like test pilots and astronauts to follow later, had the "right stuff" of aviation heroism. Lindbergh fan James Stewart, himself a pilot, sought the role -- and was initially turned down. But his persistence paid off, as Stewart added Lindy to his gallery of indelible portrayals of American heroes. He and Wilder together manned the cockpit of a stirring epic entertainment.

Product Description:

Billy Wilder's loving biographical portrait of Charles Lindbergh focuses on the flying legend's courageous crossing of the Atlantic in a single-engine plane. Flashbacks show Lindbergh (James Stewart) learning his craft in the air force, barnstorming, and carrying mail in dangerously rickety early airplanes.


Production Notes:

  • Wilder and Lindbergh were friends--even at the height of Lindbergh's fame, he took the public bus when he would come to visit Wilder at his home in Beverly Hills.
