I saw this film when it came out in 1957. It thought it was terrific and it still is pretty good. America was much more patriotic and appreciative of its heros than today's Liberals and Left-wingers permit. James Stewart was himself a Brigadier General in the U.S. Air Force Reserves. The film is 2hrs and 15 minutes long but no one thought it too long. Charles Lindberg's feat of solo flying across the Atlantic was a once in a life-time occurrence. The entire world honored him. He was honored by having the dance named 'the Lyndy' after him. This film probably looks ancient to today's audience with cell phones and electric cars and the internet but to the audiences of 1957 it was very meaningful.
