Jet Pilot


Jet Pilot

The legendary talents of producer Howard Hughes (Hell's Angels, The Outlaw), director Josef von Sternberg (The Blue Angel, Blonde Venus) and actor John Wayne combine to bring a thrilling and often humorous Cold War adventure to the screen, accentuated by outstanding aerial photography and thunderous action sequences. The immortal Duke gives one of his most commanding performances as a high-flying American Air Force colonel, and Janet Leigh has never been lovelier as the Russian aviatrix with whom he falls in love. Sent by the Pentagon to obtain top secret information from a supposedly defecting Russian lady pilot (Leigh), the Colonel (Wayne) courts her so successfully that they fall in love and wed. With their marriage as a perfect cover, he is ordered to flee to Russia with his bride; this time with him posing as a defector. When the political charade is discovered, however, the courageous couple embarks in a dangerous flight to freedom in a heart-pounding escape with enemy agents in hot pursuit.
