FIGHTER SQUADRON (1948 - Music by Max Steiner)
Directed by Raoul Walsh

Starring Edmond O'Brien and Robert Stack

At an American air base in England, 1943, is conniving Sergeant Dolan, who manipulates everyone, and insubordinate ace fighter pilot Major Ed Hardin. When Ed is promoted to commander of his group, he must fight his former anti-authority stance as well as the enemy; tension grows as D-Day approaches. Generally lighthearted between moments of technicolor gore; lots of air combat footage, much of it genuine.

Max Steiner and Raoul Walsh worked together in 13 movies
