Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Tyrone Power is the quintessential American abroad, a brash, smart-talking flyboy with a roving eye and a mercenary heart--in other words, a part made for him. "I know, I'm a worm," he smiles as he plants a kiss on Betty Grable, the American showgirl who can't seem to stay mad at the charming cad who enlists in the RAF just to impress her. The marvelous special-effects model work delivers two excellent airborne sequences (a harrowing bombing run over Germany and a swarming dogfight over the evacuation of Dunkirk), but as military melodrama it's ultimately pure Hollywood fluff and only halfhearted propaganda. A Yank in the RAF is less about the war in Europe than about Power's rakish grin and future GI pin-up Grable's oft-displayed legs, and they display their charms for all they're worth. --Sean Axmaker

Product Description

Tyrone Power pursues Betty Grable and becomes A YANK IN THE R.A.F., in this romantic drama set in the early days of WWII. For smooth-talking daredevil pilot Tim Baker (Power), flying is a game and the war is simply an opportunity to make some quick money. When a high-paying job ferrying bombers across the Atlantic lands him in London, he runs into Carol (Grable), an old flame, and joins the R.A.F. just to be near her. But problems arise when Carol is pursued by another pilot (John Sutton), who treats her better and happens to be Baker's superior officer! When both men start flying bombing missions over Europe, Carol finds that choosing between them is suprisingly hard, and Baker learns that not everyone takes life as lightly as he does.

4.0 out of 5 stars Grable brings playboy flier down to earth August 18, 1999
Format:VHS Tape
Playboy flier Tyrone Power enlists in RAF at the start of WW2. In London he literally bumps into his ex-girlfriend, dancer Betty Grable, and tries to rekindle their romance, in this exciting wartime adventure written by studio chief Darryl Zanuck (under the name of Melville Crossman). Hollywood's first WW2 film is a very authentic account of the early days of Britain at war. Good use of actual aerial battle-scene footage. And Grable adds a touch of much-needed sex appeal in her scenes with Power. In the original story Power's character was killed in battle, but when the British War Office heard of this, they pleaded with Zanuck to change the ending as it would have a bad effect on the morale of UK citizens! Zanuck conceded, and Power wins Grable in the end. Oh well, that's Hollywood.

...this 1941 film did a lot in its day to interest
Americans in the plight of our British cousins at
the beginning of World War II. It is entertainment,
but with air combat footage that adds to its reality.
Betty Grable and Tyrone Power are attractive and
engaging. Now that we are once again sadly engaged
in war, it is of special interest to have the chance
to look at ourselves sixty years ago and reflect upon
the similarities and the differences. Betty Grable
was a symbol of American womanhood back then...she was
more than a pin up...she was a working woman and a very
popular entertainer. Certainly she is another reason
this film is well worth watching.

Format:DVD
If you're a fan of Betty Grable like most of the people writting reviews on this movie, then you should just buy it! I did and I liked this movie. Betty Grable was the best! If you have any doubts about it, I suggest you check it out on youtube or some other website first. Mostly though, if you're browsing through Betty Grable's dvd's, chances are you're going to buy this movie :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie Always! January 29, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a fun movie where guy chases girl...gets the girl...then lost the girl and then at the end wins her back with all his charm! I would say it has some serious parts as well as it is a comedy! Love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars I love it February 2, 2012
Format:DVD
I already watched so many times and never get tired. Became one of my most favorite movies. Tyrone Power is and always will be legend. He really comes from the past as a dream. Today there are not made movies like this. The whole movie is great. I can not imagine how anybody can give this less than 5 stars
