CLASSIC or ANTIQUE: Reach for the Sky (1956)

I am about ready to begin my annual War Genre Tournament. This year's competition is to determine the best dogfighting film. Because of the parameters of the contest, some air combat movies did not make the field. I got some great suggestions and "Reach for the Sky" was one of them. It did not make the cut because it does not have much dogfighting and it is more of a biopic. I have decided to give it its due by reviewing it to lead into the tournament. “Reach for the Sky” is a biopic about the legendary Battle of Britain hero Douglas Bader. The movie was a huge hit in Great Britain. It won the BAFTA for Best British Film and was the biggest box office hit of 1956. Ut was the biggest hit in the U. K. since “Gone with the Wind” in 1939. It did not do well in the States. The producers were well aware of the iconic status of Bader so they went out of their way to preempt criticism of the historical accuracy of the movie. The movie begins with a disclaimer: “For dramatic purposes, it has been necessary…to transpose in time certain events…and also to re-shape some of the characters…. The film opens in 1928 with Bader (Kenneth More) volunteering for the Royal Air Force. Bader is not a model student. He continues that talent in the subsequent years. Eleven years after joining the RAF, he is taunted into showing off and ends up in a horrific crash. Both of his legs are amputated. He is fitted with prosthetic legs and determines to return to flying. He meets a girl named Thelma (Muriel Pavlow). The RAF turns him down because there is nothing in the regulations that cover his disability. Can’t a guy get a war up in this place. World War II was not just a second chance for Hitler. Not only does Bader get back into the service (because the British were so desperate they put legless men in cockpits), but he is given a squadron of surly Canadians to whip into shape. That’s right, the war was going so badly that Canadians were being dicks about it. When the Canadians complain about their lack of success, Bader is like “hello, no legs here. ” Bader cracks the whip, shows his aeroability, and earns their respect. He becomes an ace during the Battle of Britain, but later is forced to parachute over France and taken captive. I was a bit surprised that unlike many biopics, “Reach for the Sky” sticks to the basic facts of Bader’s military career. The movie hits the highlights, but is not interested in digging deep.
