Flat Top (1952) Sterling Hayden




Director:

Lesley Selander

Writer:

Steve Fisher

Stars:

Sterling Hayden, Richard Carlson, William Phipps


Tough ass commander Dan Collier (Sterling Hayden) looks back on his years in WWII aboard an aircraft carrier. His second officer (Richard Carlson) is more interested in being popular with his men than giving tough orders. Other than that there's not much of a plot in this film. Stock footage of air combat and planes landing are used. Sterling Hayden is very convincing as an officer that knows how to train men for combat. ★★

    Richard Carlson
