Brothers Monte and Ray leave Oxford to join the Royal Flying Corps. Ray loves Helen; Helen enjoys an affair with Monte; before they leave on their mission over Germany they find her in still another man's arms.
Pre-Production Code audiences gasped at the language of the pilots during the dogfight scenes with Baldy screaming "son of a Bosch!" at the Germans and Monte cursing "son of a bee!".
Are we here?
Monte Rutledge: Well, it's number 27.
Helen: Want to come up for a cigarette and a drink?
Monte Rutledge: Oh, really? You must be awfully tired.
Helen: No, I'm not. Come see my room. I've only had a place of my own for a week. It's a new toy.
Monte Rutledge: What a baby, you are.
