Three air hostesses employed by the (fictional) airline Polar Atlantic Airways juggle working with searching for love. Donna Stuart catches the eye of Baron Franz Von Elzingen, who may not be who he appears. New girl Carol Brewster has an on-off relationship with the plane's womanizing First Officer, Ray Winsley. Hilda "Bergie" Bergstrom is smitten with Walter Lucas, an older passenger who turns out to be a recently widowed multi-millionaire.Written by
Just a pleasant, solid film with a breezy theme song and some attractive young performers, (and Karl Malden, too), in a film that goes down easy. There are a lot of such films that were made in the 60's and I miss them. It's interesting that this has been described by some posters as a comedy. It really isn't, but it's such a "nice" movie it seems like one. There's nothing wrong with curling up on the couch and just enjoying something that's easy to take.
It's also a last look at Dolores Hart as an actress. She's very beautiful, even by movies star standards, has a very expressive face and has a strong intelligent presence. She might have accomplished great things in the cinema but I'll bet those qualities came in handy in her new profession, one which I'm sure meant a lot more to her.
