 Notes & Reviews
John Wayne, Dan Dailey, and Maureen O'Hara star in one of John Ford's most personal films, in which he pays tribute to a man he knew and admired in real life, pioneering World War I naval aviator Frank 'Spig' Wead. Although Wead (Wayne) is instrumental in advancing the cause of American air power, he endures a troubled personal life, becoming estranged from his wife, Minnie (O'Hara) after the death of their baby. During a bout of drinking, he tumbles down the stairs of his home and is paralyzed.
