It is not without authority, even though the dramatics are a bit strained. Full Review

With a cynically acidic script by Herman J Mankiewicz, among others, this early talkie is one of the most enjoyably scabrous examples of Hollywood on Hollywood. Full Review

It is an excellent melodrama, ably directed, with a background familiar to producers -- for it is chiefly concerned with stunt flying before the cameras in Hollywood and a film director is the evil genius. Full Review

Description by OLDIES.com:

Forged in the fiery skies of World War I, a squadron of American fliers is connected by unbreakable bonds of loyalty, blood and grief. Going their separate ways after the war, these debonair daredevils of the air find civilian life somewhat lacking. Jobs, girls and even fortune have all been lost while they served the country. When one of them lands a gig as a stunt flyer in the suddenly booming motion-picture business of Hollywood and Burbank, it's one for all and all for one. Now reunited, the lost squadron astounds with its daredevil exploits, only to face a menace more dangerous than the Red Baron: tyrannical director Von Furst (Erich von Stroheim). When one of their number is killed because of Von Furst, the boys declare war on Hollywood.
