I was doing a search of the IMDb database for a little info on Capt. P.F. Queeg and as always became a little side-lined.

Turns out Fred McMurray (..rest his soul) was in The Caine Mutiny and it went from there... So anyway, Fred was also in a different movie that caught my eye:

Dive Bomber (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0033537/).

Among other comments on Dive Bomber, it's said that many of "the aerial footage is downright glamorous" and that "almost every outdoor scene has a flight of real aircraft zooming through it." The effect is "sumptuous, and makes even 'The Battle of Britain' look very small beer."

Sounds like a great flick. Now can anyone tell me where a bloke can get a copy of a movie that old?

The (Googoo) Search function saves embarrassment . . .

80 bucks?? For an unused VHS copy??? Thanks but Queeg don't do VHS....

Someone must've put it out on DVD in a classics section somewhere. There's the challenge G-C....

Meanwhile, better than the Battle of Britain is what intrigues me. And made years earlier, too.

TBoB was a good flick from an pilot's point of view. This Dive Bomber must be well worth watching then...


Found that DVD yet G-C?
