The Spirit of St. Louis Reviews:

"The Spirit of St. Louis" is Billy Wilder's movie tribute to one of the greatest figures in aeronautical history, remembered for the first nonstop solo flight across the Atlantic Ocean in May 1927 with James Stewart (a tiny too old for the part) testing Charles Lindbergh...As a tribute it is eloquent enough and, although a several great liberties may have been taken with historical fact, the motion picture describing the detailed odyssey before and after the Paris flight on May 20-21 in the monoplane "Spirit of St. Louis."Although the lengthy internal monologue employed during the adventure may be disappointing to an audience, the truth is that it supports hold the picture focused tightly on its essential point... Stewart dignified the portrait of one of the best adventurers in the air the globe has ever know, departing, in a highly modified single engine monoplane, from Long Island, Fresh York to Paris, France...No action is depicted in the trip, only some flashbacks to break up the monotony of the long flight... But there is magnificent determination of the ordeal of a brave and talented pilot decided to fly alone... His equation is simple: less weight (one engine, one pilot) would increase fuel efficiency and let for a longer flying range, but with so much risk... Lindbergh's claim to fame was doing something that many had tried and failed...Even though Wilder has bravely place it upon the screen in a calm, unhurried fashion, it comes out as biography of intense restraint and power... But it is James Stewart's performance (controlled to the last detail) that gives life and strong, heroic stature to the principal figure in the film...From it there, emerges an awareness of a clever, firm but truly humble boy who tackles a task with resolution, plans as much about it as he can, makes his decisions with courageous finality and then awaits with only one thought in mind, to receive to Paris... In his efforts to slash off the plane's weight, any item considered too massive or unnecessary was left behind...The record-setting flight proved not only to be a war with the elements and a use of navigation, but also a long war vs fatigue... A busy schedule and an active mind kept Lindbergh up all of the previous night... Still, he managed to stay conscious enough to hold the monoplane from ruining and landed at Le Bourget Aerodrome, near Paris, 33 hours and 30 mins after leaving Fresh York...Stewart gives an able portrait of a brave pilot who attains legendary status, emphasizing the intention and dominant resolution to fly nonstop 5,810 kilometers (3,610 miles) across the Atlantic...Photographed in CinemaScope and WarnerColor and backed by Franz Waxman's pretty music, the movie effectively captures the pioneering spirit of the era and the hero's ultimate achievement since he takes off, that day, from Roosevelt wet field, and clears telephone wires at the end of the runway...


I have watched this movie few times over the years and everytime search it an entertaining experience. As a retired airline pilot, I am interested in most aviation films and this is one of the better ones. I know that Lindbergh was only 25 years old at the time of his historic solo flight to Paris and that James Stewart was almost 50 when making this film but I can overlook that fact because Stewart has everytime been one of my all-time favourite actors and does one of his usual outstanding performances as the "lone eagle".There is a nice mixture of comedy and drama throughout the movie and a nice test of flashbacks. It also supports that James Stewart was a pilot in true life both in the military and civilian life.


The word impossible has led many to choose a particular view concerning any wonderful task. In 1927, it was believed no boy should fly the breath of the Atlantic Ocean. Many had tried but failed and some even gave their lives to the effort. Nevertheless, it had to be done as each challenge needs to be met with equal determination. Such then is the heart of this film named "The Spirit of St. Louis." The actor selected for this historic movie is none another than America's own James Stewart who convincingly plays Charles Lindbergh. Although there are many facets of Lindbergh's life, the segment featured here is his efforts to be the First Boy to fly across the Atlantic. The storyline is an interesting one and for Stewards' fanatics compelling to tell the least. Seeking enough funds to build a unique aircraft, to the fateful decision to began the adventure on a gloomy day in May 1927, 'Luck Lindy' as he was christened, endured enormous risks, which are featured in this magnificent film. Another notables which helped create this movie believable are Murray Hamilton who plays Bud Gurney, Bartlett Robinson as Ben Mahoney, Arthur Zone and Charles Watts as O.W. Schultz. The sum total of this actually popular film is that despite terrible endorsement on its debut, it has since become a Classic in it's own right. Well done! ****
