User Ratings: 71
Rating: 3.5/5 -- The tone in many ways reminded me of Top Gun, which would come out three decades later: Callow young pilots learn to rely on their fellow fighter jocks and act as a team. Full Review

Description by

A quagmire viewed soaring at 20,000 feet at supersonic speeds, Panther Squadron flies from an aircraft carrier, carrying out the same railroad run over and over. Two veterans preach very different philosophies to the top guns: one (Frank Lovejoy) pushes for grit and glory, the other (Keenan Wynn) for savvy and safety. Two of their charges, Lt. Howard Thayer (Van Johnson) and Ens. Kenneth Schecter (Dewey Martin), take away two very different lessons when one of the vets demonstrates the true meaning of heroism and sacrifice. While their Commander (Walter Pidgeon) sagely guides them, the writer (Louis Calhern as James Michener) observes all.

Product Description:

The story centers around the "Fighting Lady" which is an aircraft carrier stationed off Korea in the Sea of Japan.
