(1957) Uneven but colorful bio of Frank “Spig” Wead (John Wayne), a pioneering naval aviator in the 1920s who became a writer after a spine injury in the 1930s. Director John Ford’s sentimental tribute to the Navy has plenty of romanticized action and broad humor, with a solid cast including Maureen O’Hara as Wead’s wife, Dan Dailey as his orderly, and Ward Bond as a Ford-like movie director. Much drinking and brawling as well as some domestic strife. (A-I -- general patronage) TCM (cable)
