U.S Air Force Sgt. Chuck Brennan always disliked playboy and hotshot, Col. Jim Herlihy. He first met him in Korea, where his emergency arrival for repairs while enroute for what Chuck thought was the colonels "hot date" in Tokyo, caused the death of several of his crewmen. Now several years later when Chuck, while still in the Air Force, is now weighing continued enlistment or retirement, the base's new C.O. is none other than Col. Herlihy. Compounding his dislike is a budding romance with Chuck's daughter, Lois.—Bill Walch

Short Review

I thought this was a good film. Karl Malden plays a subject matter expert. He is a Air Force Master Sergeant (Senior NCO) at the cross roads of retirement (20yrs). Should he stay in or should he go? For a change it is actually about the technicians that keep the planes flying and not the pilots. Any old school SNCO (and spouses) will find it difficult the change the channel. Anyone else may not get this film.
