Synopsis / Plot
Maverick filmmaker William Wellman directs and bases this wartime romance on his experiences in World War I. The story is centered on a group of ace pilots, flying for France in the early years of the war, who encounter romance as well as combat. Still licking emotional wounds caused by his father, American youth Thad Walker (Tab Hunter) leaves the States to join the Lafayette Escadrille. Though he meets exciting people and sees his share of combat, more importantly he dates a French girl, Renee (Etchika Choureau), who happens to be a prostitute.
