There was no quiet on the Western Front for the heroes and cowards who flew to their rendezvous with Hell!
|A coveted medal - the 'blue max' - is ruthlessly sought after by members of the german luftwaffe.|
Editor's NoteWWII. The "Blue Max", a coveted medal for achievement in flying, is ruthlessly sought by Peppard, a poor-boy German soldier who climbs out of the trenches and into the aristocratic air force. He is met with prejudice by the other contestants, wealthy snobs who look down upon his low economic stature. When he claims the title, he earns the respect of the General and the General's wife (Andress), who wants to repay him in ways that the General might not appreciate. Peppard, on the other hand, does. Fantastic aerial combat highlights the film, although the scenes between the two lovers don't hurt matters much.
