John Sayles on

Test Pilot

Released 1938
Distributor MGM

A high-flying crowd pleaser that only the studio system could manufacture, MGM’s Test Pilot was directed by Victor Fleming, written by Howard Hawks, and starred the can’t-miss trio of Clark Gable, Myrna Loy, and Spencer Tracy. Gable plays a reckless flyboy, Loy his down-home  sweetheart, and Tracy his true-blue pal. The airborne pyrotechnics and earthbound romance spawned a big box office and several Oscar nominations.
