It is a first-hand lesson in what the Hawks universe was all about, and it is unsurpassed entertainment from the word go. Between business partners, colleagues, friendship or marriage – that unquestionable trust, without asking out loud but understood within – is what life and dare all about.

Bonnie is dismayed by the way the dead pilot’s colleagues seem not to care about his death, they just go about their business and pretend he was never there in the first place, so as not to be reminded of their own mortality.
These men are not “family men” or people with long term aspirations. They live in the moment and find their meaning through their comraderie and understated support of each other. In all, a solid adventure-romance tale, and I’m shocked it gets so little attention on this website, with under 20 reviews as of my writing. Men – one track-minded, to fly to deliver no-matter-what. Studio magic emanates from every joyous scene. Two hours of undiminished tension, action-wise, sexually, whatnot. The safety conditions for these pilots are non-existent and as a result they live each day as though it was their last.

Only Angels Have Wings is both Hawks’ best movie and one of the key pictures of the decade. Bonnie is dismayed by the way the dead pilot’s colleagues seem not to care about his death, they just go about their business and pretend he was never there in the first place, so as not to be reminded of their own mortality. At a remote South American trading port, the manager of an air freight company is forced to risk his pilots’ lives in order to win an important contract. Women – worry, or why worry.
Hawks claimed that it was one of his most “true” films in that he had been a flyer in World War I and was very interested in the dynamics between the early daredevils of aviation.

Thomas Mitchell is most intriguing as the “buddy” who has been with Geoff for a long time and is quite subtle in his dedication toward his friend. Jean Arthur, Cary Grant and Thomas Suvtitles all hit peak form here and deliver stunning performances, putting across Jules Furthman’s punchy dialogue with astonishing vitality.
There are dozens of classic sequences, but one in particular stands-out. In this film Cary Grant, who is one of the greatest “Hawksian” actors, plays Geoff the head of the air mail airline who has sworn off women because they just don’t seem to deal with his dangerous lifestyle.
Be not fooled, sentiments are there for friends passed away.
I first saw it on cable TCM the latter half and couldn’t wait to catch it again for the full story. Hawks films are worth studying and “Only Angels have Wings” is a textbook sample.
In terms of influence Hawks would give ANY golden age director a run for his money. The fun begins in Hawks films when a woman arrives who is often more than a match for the man she’s in love with!
