|Buzz rickson is a dare-devil world war II bomber pilot with a death wish. Failing at everything not involving flying, rickson lives for the most dangerous missions. His crew lives with this aspect of his personality only because they know he always brings them back alive.|
Editor's NoteSteve McQueen is Buzz Rickson, a B17 pilot during WWII. Rickson's brashness serves him well during wartime, but he finds that he feels out of place during everyday civilian life. His more mild-mannered co-pilot, Bo Bolland (Robert Wagner), however, lives only to get through the war to resume his life with his girl, Daphne (Shirley Anne Field). This wartime character study is based on a novel by John Hersey, who also wrote the screenplay.
