Only Angels Have Wings: Howard Hawks‘ film is really engaging and entertaining; even at a repeated viewing, it’s surprising how quick the pace is and how, at the end, one wants to continue following the world displayed. It has not as much a plot as a rich and engrossing situation, inhabited by a marvelous gallery of characters. It is a great cast, from the leads (Cary Grant and Jean Arthur are both wonderful) down to the many supporting players (Thomas Mitchell chiefly among them), all reading the snappy dialogue with complete abandon. The musical interludes add a lot to this film, that indeed has (more than) three great scenes and no bad ones. Very effectively shot by Joseph Walker.
