Dawn Patrol

This 1938 production is a remake of the 1930 film about fighter pilots in World War One.  Most film critics consider this 1938 movie to be the superior version of the story. 

Featured in the cast are Errol Flynn, Basil Rathbone, David Niven, and Morton Lowry. The November movie in this series always honors veterans of the Armed Services, and the selection of this particular movie coincides with the national commemoration of US participation in the First World War.
