Hi! This is my first post on this forum, I am a young filmaker . . . and obviously film buff. When i am writing a screenplay for a short film I often find insperation from the films of the past. The one I am currently working on tells the story a naval aviator who comes home from the Vietnam war, alienated, and falls for the wife of his dead co-pilot. Well . . its getting there. So far, except for "The Quiet Man", "Vertigo" and few other films that have already inspired me, I have looked at aviation films such as "The Wings of Eagles", "Strategic Air Command" and even "A guy named joe". My question is can any of you guys suggest other good aviation films that take place in an American setting (classic ones, preferably, as ive seen alot of the flying movies from Top Gun onwards). Your help and discussion is really appreciated! Steven.
