A Yank in the R.A.F. ★★½ 1941

Power's enthusiastic performance as a brash American pilot boosts this dated WWII adventure. He and his British allies seem more concerned over who gets showgirl Betty Grable than in the Nazis, but climactic air attacks retain excitement. Produced by Darryl F. Zanuck to drum up American support for embattled Britain and France. 98m/B VHS, DVD . Tyrone Power, Betty Grable, John Sutton, Reginald Gardiner; D: Henry King.
