THE LOST SQUADRON REVIEWED
“The Lost Squadron” isn’t a War movie. Well, there’s World War I action and the film follows a group of veteran pilots. However, the film is more about how these flyboys are faring during the Great Depression. Work is scarce and fuel isn’t growing on trees. Now, they have to take oddjobs and desperately await the next fight that will let them take flight. Thankfully, motion pictures are taking off in California and they need stunt pilots.
The squadron of pilots reunites under the command of a tyrannical director. Will this psycho’s insane commands get the pals killed? Well, let’s put it this way. The flyboys don’t take their early PTSD revenge on Hollywood for no reason. This is the kind of movie that gets buried only to be rediscovered. If you want to see a slightly Pre Code movie that goes crazy, pick this one up.
