Errol Flynn and David Niven take to the skies in this thrilling aerial action yarn as World War I British flyboys who, whether quaffing down beers or gunning down their German foes, unite in devil may care gallantry and in disdain for their commander (Basil Rathbone). But wars realities will soon tarnish their bonhomie and change their disdain to understanding. They will also become commanders, forced each dawn to send young poorly trained recruits in patch up aircraft to certain death. Its superior pacing, performances and style, combined with amazing dogfights above and a haunting indictment of wars futility below, make The Dawn Patrol a soaring classic of guts and glory.
