Only Angels Have Wings

At a remote South American port, the manager of an air-freight company is forced to risk his pilots’ lives to win an important contract when a traveling American showgirl stops in town. Starring Cary Grant, Jean Arthur, and Rita Hayworth in a small breakout role, this Howard Hawks feature was nominated for Best Visual Effects at the Academy Awards®.

"The film offers genuine intrigue and excitement.... But its ultimate power derives largely from its unusual ethos, which celebrates pragmatism at the expense of emotional behavior while simultaneously acknowledging just how profound a pragmatist’s emotions can be."
Mike D'Angelo, A.V. Club

This film is part of the Senior Afternoon Cinema series.
