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.

"The Spirit of St. Louis" is another buried treasure in the KCLS. There are 2 copies in circulation and only one copy out. As of today, July 28, 2014, there is only one KCLS patron comment from aaa5756 of A+ for a review. I will add five stars and my hope that the story of Charles Lindbergh will not be forgotten. At the time, the whole world listened on radio as he attempted to fly from New York to Paris. James Stewart plays Charles Lindbergh with a terrific performance. I felt like I was up in the plane with him. I really hope more KCLS patrons get a chance to see this classic either for the first time or as I did, look at it again with pride in the accomplishment of a single man.
