Description by OLDIES.com:
Atlantic Flight was rushed into production in 1937 to capitalize on the world-wide fame of pilot Dick Merrill, who had set speed records in the world's first commercial transatlantic round-trip that same year. Though a completely fictional tale, the film utilizes actual footage from that historic flight. Merrill is joined in this movie by his actual co-pilot from the record-breaking mission, Jack Lambie. Neither Dick nor Jack made another feature after this one, being far better pilots than actors. 1937 was also a big year for Merrill when he met and married young Busby Berkely beauty, Toby Wing.
Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 57 ratings.
This film is a must for vintage airplane enthusiasts. It contains extensive clear footage of a wide variety of 1930s civil airplanes that are today prized collectors items. There is also considerable stock footage taken at the 1936 National Air Races held in Los Angeles that year.
