Plot Summary
Major Ed Hardin (Edmond O'Brien), a devil-may-care fighter pilot during World War II, earns a certain begrudging admiration from his superior, Colonel Brickley (John Rodney). Brickley respects him so much, in fact, that when he gets a promotion he recommends Hardin as his replacement. In a twist, Hardin turns over a new leaf as strict taskmaster, but ends up tested himself by Captain Stu Hamilton (Robert Stack), a friend who goes against the major's rules and chooses to marry.
