Description
Based On The Pulitzer-Prize Winning Book by Charles A. Lindbergh.

On May 21, 1927, the world changed. "Lucky Lindy" landed outside Paris. And people who previously talked about the limitations of air travel suddenly dreamed of its limitless possibilities. The Spirit of St. Louis is six-time Academy Award® winner Billy Wilder's recreation of the struggles and success of Charles A. Lindbergh, the pioneering flyboy who, like test pilots and astronauts to follow later, had the "right stuff" of aviation heroism. Lindbergh fan James Stewart, himself a pilot, sought the role - and was initially turned down. But his persistence paid off, as Stewart added Lindy to his gallery of indelible portrayals of American heroes. He and Wilder together manned the cockpit of a stirring epic entertainment.

Comments about this product:

This is classic movie of the first transatlantic flight. The film dose a good job with keeping the plot moving forward. Mixes humor in as well.
It was shipped in a cardboard envelope with little padding. The case was crushed a bit but the disc worked fine.

          A real plane was built just like the real thing for this movie. There's NOTHING fake about it! It's also a story that needs to be refreshed in our memory in a day and age where we take so much including air travel. This wonderful historical (they took a bit of leeway) movie is my reminder of just what bravery is and just how hard it was while aviation finally took to the air. It's a movie I keep enjoying time and time again and so will you.

                "The Spirit of St. Louis" is an entertaining gripping film of Charles Lindbergh and the first transatlantic flight from New York to Paris in May 1927. The film directed by the talented Billy Wilder is quite good, from impressive aerial cinematography to James Stewart in one of his best acting performances. The "Spirit of St. Louis" funded by businessmen from St. Louis, and designed in large part by Lindbergh, propels him through extraordinary moments and some close calls documented in the 33 1/2 hours of his famous flight. Once Lindbergh departs from New York, the audience is whisked up in the air and is treated to colorful scenes of his early beginnings as he reminisces on board the plane. The flashbacks showcase Lindbergh's experiences and provides the viewer an insight into his love affair with aviation. The last few hours of Lindbergh's flight are intense. Not only does the film document when the "Spirit of St. Louis" begins to accumulate ice on its wings, but portrays the incredible toll on Lindbergh of sheer exhaustion as he desperately fights from falling asleep. The film culminates with his famous landing to Le Bourget Field outside of Paris greeted by cheering crowds of thousands, followed by a hero's welcome in America woven with footage of the real event. The magnitude of Lindbergh's heroism and historic flight are beautifully captured in this movie. The way this film is shot, along with Jimmy Stewart's natural reactions and incredible performance as he narrates Lindbergh's thoughts, makes this journey a flight not to be missed!
