Only Angels Have Wings

Buy Tickets

(1939) dir Howard Hawks w/Cary Grant, Jean Arthur, Rita Hayworth, Richard Barthelmess [121 min; DCP]
Columbia studio chief Harry Cohn convinced Howard Hawks to cast Hayworth for the important role of pilot Cary Grant’s exflame in this exciting tale of death-defying cargo pilots in the Andes mountains.

“The ultimate workplace dramedy.” – Michael Sragow, New Yorker

“Hawks skillfully creates an ensemble of relationships that intersect with electric undertones of desire, love, respect, and admiration… Only Angels Have Wings is Hawks’ most moving film.” – Adam Cook, Little White Lies

“This is the quintessential Hawks movie, combining spectacular aerial sequences with the fatalistic barroom machismo of the pilots off duty.” – Geoffrey Macnab, Independent (UK)
