Jeremy: There are two versions of DAWN PATROL, about WW1 flyers - directed
by Howard Hawks in 1930 and Edmund Goulding in 1938. The 38 version, for
sure, is available on video. Also Hawks's ONLY ANGELS HAVE WINGS, 1939,
though this deals with airmail pilots. Try THE EAGLE AND THE HAWK, dir by
Stuart Walker, 1933.There's also a British movie called Q-PLANES (US title
CLOUDS OVER EUROPE) dir by Tim Whelan in 1939 - more of a curiosity than a
good film, though typical of UK production in late thirties. THE SHAPE OF
THINGS TO COME, which you already mentioned is an excellent illustration of
air power.
