Plot: Victor Fleming (GONE WITH THE WIND, THE WIZARD OF OZ) directs and Spencer Tracy stars in this witty, warmhearted World War II classic about ace fighter pilots, love, duty, and true friendship. Tracy plays Pete Sandidge, a fighter pilot with a devil-may-care attitude. After crashing into a German aircraft carrier, Sandidge finds himself in heaven, where the general (Lionel Barrymore) sends him back to Earth as a guardian angel for a young pilot, Ted Randall (Van Johnson). Sandidge admirably guides his charge through flight school and pilot training but loses his cool when Randall falls for Sandidge’s ex-girlfriend, Dorinda Durston (Irene Dunne). Sandidge is called back to heaven and berated by the general for his nonangelic behavior. When Sandidge returns to Earth, Randall is assigned to an extremely dangerous mission that threatens to change everything. Director Fleming navigates a top-flight drama that was later remade by Steven Spielberg as ALWAYS.
