| His natural charisma
Bruce Cabot and Beatrice Roberts star in this B picture comedy/romance about a pilot and a stewardess with ambitions to be a pilot. Both of them get sidetracked in their romance when Roberts is offered a Hollywood contract and Cabot actually gets one.

Before becoming a commercial airline pilot, Cabot was a stunt flier and during a publicity stunt when he agrees to fly movie star Astrid Allwyn to the East Coast. They're forced down and are missing for a couple of days. When they turn up alive Cabot's natural charisma comes forth on the newsreels and he gets to star opposite Allwyn in an aviation picture.

All of which is too much for Roberts who even drops playboy Bill Elliott from courting her on the rebound to take up his father's offer to fly from Los Angeles to Manila solo.

I can't say more other than Cabot's alpha male ego is bruised and he does something about it.

Allwyn who is best known for playing Claude Rains daughter in Mr. Smith Goes To Washington gives a nice turn as an egotistical movie star. Something I'm sure she saw a great deal of in her career.

This is a pleasant enough film and no doubt Roberts might have been the inspiration for Doris Day in Julia and Karen Black in Airport 75.
