On a transcontinental flight from New York City to Los Angeles, Joan Lawson, the flight hostess, attracts the attention of a move producer, Dave Miller, and he tries to persuade her to sign a movie contract. She declines, as she is in love with the pilot, Neil Bradshaw, and desires to learn to fly under his tuition. The airplane, because of unfavorable flying conditions, is grounded in L.A, but a passenger, movie star Diane Andre, insists that Neil start for New York, despite the weather. "Spud" Johnson, publicity director for the airline, sees publicity and exploitation possibilities and orders Neil to take up the airplane. Later, the plane is reported lost and the newspapers publish stories of the lost plane, the lost actress and the lost pilot. Then they are found on a mountain, having been forced down by the storm.

A film that might have been better, still isn't bad--after all, it has Bruce Cabot in it--
10 February 2001 | by orlabrownSee all my reviews

Love Takes Flight is one of those 1930's Hollywood films that can't think of anything more exciting than a story about Hollywood. In this case, Hollywood, airplanes, and aircraft personnel. I was somewhat disappointed in this film, though a large part of that was simply a reflection on the attitudes of the day. Bruce Cabot is always fun to watch, even though he can come across as a bit stiff. Best of the cast, in my opinion, was Beatrice Roberts as Joan Lawson, the airline hostess.

The story revolves around Joan, and Neil Bradshaw (a pilot) who are planning a record-breaking flight to Manila. Both, at different times, are offered Hollywood contracts (co-incidentally with the same producer and leading star)--one accepts, and one declines. This causes many problems, and much angst as they make decisions about their futures. Will the lure of Hollywood stars or starlets pull them apart, or can it bring them back together? Are their dreams more important than a fat paycheck from the studio? The final answers are a little forced, but it's not a bad little flick.
