Only Angels Have Wings is a 1939 drama about a group of bush pilots living in South America. Geoff Carter (Cary Grant) is a pilot who works for a company that transports mail in South America. Since he constantly has to fly through the treacherous mountain passes of the Andes, it is an extraordinarily dangerous job. One day, a piano player named Bonnie Lee arrives (Jean Arthur), and she quickly falls for the dashing pilot. Shortly thereafter, another couple arrives: Bat MacPherson (Richard Barthelmess) and his wife, Judy (Rita Hayworth). Bat is a disgraced pilot who once bailed out of his plane, allowing his mechanic to die. Since then, he has been unable to get to work. Judy begs Carter to give Bat a job, and he reluctantly agrees, provided that Bat agrees to only take the most dangerous missions. When Carter's mail company is threatened with losing its contract, a terrifying mission must be undertaken that will either allow Bat to redeem himself or force Carter to lose both his livelihood and the affections of Bonnie Lee.moreless
