Chain Lightning ★★ 1950

Bogart stars as a bomber pilot who falls in love with a Red Cross worker (Parker) while fighting in Europe in 1943. They lose touch after the war until Bogie goes to work as a test pilot for the same shady airplane manufacturer (Massey) where Parker works. He is given the chance to test a new plane, which has already cost the life of one of his friends. Bogart has more success, along with rekindling the flames of romance. Average script but the flying sequences are well-done. 94m/B VHS . Humphrey Bogart, Eleanor Parker, Raymond Massey, Richard Whorf; D: Stuart Heisler; W: Liam O'Brien, Vincent B. Evans.
