On May 21, 1927, the world changed. "Lucky Lindy" landed outside Paris. And people who previously talked about the limitations of air travel suddenly dreamed of its limitless possibilities.The Spirit of St. Louis is six-time Academy Award winner* Billy Wilder's recreation of the struggles and success of Charles A. Lindbergh, the pioneering flyboy who, like test pilots and astronauts to follow later, had the "right stuff" of aviation heroism. Lindbergh fan James Stewart, himself a pilot, sought the role and was initially turned down. But his persistence paid off, as Stewart added Lindy to his gallery of indelible portrayals of American heroes. He and Wilder together manned the cockpit of a stirring epic entertainment.Director: Billy WilderStarring: James Stewart, Patricia Smith, Murray HamiltonRunning Time: 135 min.Format: DVD MOVIE

Editor's Note
Billy Wilder's loving biographical portrait of Charles Lindbergh focuses on the flying legend's courageous crossing of the Atlantic in a single-engine plane. Flashbacks show Lindbergh (James Stewart) learning his craft in the air force, barnstorming, and carrying mail in dangerously rickety early airplanes.

"...Billy Wilder's most underrated film..." 03/21/1997 p.3D

At-A-Glance Film Reviews 8 of 10
Captivating story of the historical first flight across the Atlantic Ocean by Charles Lindbergh (skillfully portrayed by Jimmy Stewart). The first part of the film details preparations for the journey--building the airplane, what he should take with him, etc--and most importantly defining his character. The second part involves the flight itself, where he encounters obstacle upon obstacle threatening his victory. It's a beautiful film, a fine character study, and gripping entertainment.

FilmCritic.com 9 of 10
Charles Lindbergh and Jimmy Stewart -- "Americana" doesn't have a better definition than these two larger-than-life characters. The film is a straightforward tale of the making of Lucky Lindy, focusing on his 1927 Trans-Atlantic flight from New York to Paris, 33 1/2 harrowing hours that inaugurated the era of flight. Billy Wilder's movie isn't particularly daring in its telling, but as a piece of American -- and world -- history, The Spirit of St. Louis is something everyone should see - Christopher Null
