Saturday Man Movie

In The War Lover (1962), we have Steve McQueen, Robert Wagner, and B-17 bombers.


Trivia fact: One of the pilots who flew for the filming was noted author/historian Martin Caidin.

  4. Great birds, those '17's! And some awesome clips of low-level '17 flights!

  6. If they had filmed the story of what it took to get those bombers to England for the movie, it might have been more successful than the war movie was.

  7. The movies and TV shows always gave me the impression that they were pretty roomy in there, especially the cockpit.

    No way. Very tight inside. Got the chance to crawl around inside one that turned up at an airshow many years ago. I was glad I wasn't dressed for winter, and I'm fairly small. (They would have stuck me in the ball turret, in WWII.)
