John Ford's original film, co-written by Frank 'Spig' Wead, was later remade by Howard Hawks as 'Only Angles Have Wings'. Level-headed Mike Miller runs Desert Airport, an air mail base full of daring young pilots risking their lives to get the mail through - regardless of the weather. Following the death of one pilot in a horrific crash, Miller is forced to engage the wild and arrogant, yet skillful, Duke Talbot. When pilot Dizzy Wilkins crashes and dies in a storm, Talbot runs off with the young Mrs.Wilkins, leaving Miller to complete the last leg of Wilkins' mail run...

5 of 5 Fascinating! August 20, 2017
Reviewer: Patrick Hunter from Panorama City, CA United States  
Not the best visual copy, but certainly very watchable, and it's a cinch that Universal will not put out this John Ford film of what might seem like a Howard Hawks script.  Yay Moviedective.net!

4 of 5 Air Mail June 21, 2015
Reviewer: Kevin Collopy from Milford , OH United States  
John Ford's early talkie creaks a bit, but it moves fast and is quite exciting and entertaining. The movie shares a number of plot details with two later films by Howard Hawks, Ceiling Zero and Only Angels Have Wings, so many, in fact, that the later pictures could be considered remakes. Ceiling Zero and Air Mail were both written by Frank Wead, who was the subject of the John Ford biopic, The Wings of Eagles. Any combination of these films would make a fun double feature. The Movie Detective disk of Airmail, from a TV print, has good picture and sound, and is a rare Ford film that I have not seen available anywhere else.

Reviewer: JAMES MORRELLA from YONKERS, NY United States  
Fine Commander Spig Wead script documenting the early days of flight. Good performances depict the courage and type of man who risked their lives to further aviation. Fine film quality.
