There are no current or future screenings planned for this film.

This macho Howard Hawks drama is something entirely different than the other films in the series. Jean Arthur plays a young nightclub entertainer, delayed in a South American port, who falls in with a group of rough-and-ready mail pilots, who live and sometimes die by a curious code of honor. Co-starring Cary Grant, cast against type as the darkly sardonic leader of the airmen.
