Wing and a Prayer
- movie Description
Wing and a Prayer tells the story of crews on an American carrier during the World War II. These American Navy crews are expected to fight and win against the Japanese fleet following an attack on the Pearl Harbor. The attack weakens the Navy, and they come up with a plot to bring down the Japanese fleet. They intend to use one American aircraft carrier to lure the Japanese into heading for Midway where they will all be brought down. Bingo Harper (Don Ameche) is the flight commander in charge of the aircraft carrier that is to see the success of the mission. The bomber crews under him seem to make little sense of his logic and on several occasions defy his orders. They get frustrated by his seeming attitude to avoid combat. The pilots blame Harper when the number of casualties begin to go higher and higher. It is only when the battle takes a sudden turn in their favor that the pilots realize that their commander has been right all along.moreless
