Zavvi - The Home of Pop Culture

Electrified by the verbal wit and visual craftsmanship of the great Howard Hawks (Red River), Only Angels Have Wings stars Jean Arthur (Mr. Smith Goes to Washington) as a traveling entertainer who gets more than she bargained for during a stopover in a South American port town. There she meets a handsome yet aloof daredevil pilot, played by Cary Grant (Notorious), who runs an airmail company, staring down death while servicing towns in treacherous mountain terrain. Both attracted to and repelled by his romantic sense of danger, she decides to stay on, despite his protestations. This masterful and mysterious adventure, featuring Oscar®-nominated special effects, high-wire aerial photography, and Rita Hayworth (Gilda) in a small but breakout role, explores Hawks’s recurring themes of masculine codes and the strong-willed women who question them.

Special Features:

  • New 4K digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray
  • Audio excerpts from a 1972 conversation between filmmakers Howard Hawks and Peter Bogdanovich
  • New interview with film critic David Thomson

A great film from a great Director.

A great film showing how good Grant can act, mixing bits of comedy with the serious side of a death defying job. Hawks again produces the goods with another superb movie to add to his many outstanding efforts. I have started getting many of the old movies and Criterion supply many of them as do Eureka which you get many here from Zavvi's great collection. Highly recommend this movie if you are a collector like me then this should be on your list.
