About this item
Wing’s Up features narration by Hollywood star Clark Gable in his lesser-known role as a member of the U.S. Army Air Force. Gable saw combat as a pilot in Europe, but eventually joined the First Motion Picture Unit in California. In this Army Air Force recruitment film, Gable discusses the Officer Candidate School, which picked the most promising soldiers out of new conscripts to train as pilots and airmen. The film shows the intensive barrage of physical and mental instruction, tests, and evaluations conducted on trainees to determine who was qualified and hardy enough to serve on high-stress and technically intensive bombing missions.
