When small town girl Marcy Lewis (Wyman) becomes an airline stewardess, she finds herself the object of assorted romeos, all named Mike.

I love Jane Wyman! This movie is very sweet. This is definitely a movie for women to enjoy. Unlike the previous reviewer/Howard Keel fanatic, In my opinion, the choice became clear, little by little, through subtle means, which Mike was right, and the last scene clinched it. I don't know the quality of this tape, but the movie itself is a keeper. This is one of those they-don't-make-'em-like-they-used-to's! I wish more of Jane Wyman's movies were available; she was such a good actress.

I absolutely adore this film. Jane Wyman is so adorable. She plays a spunky, all-American girl stewardess in this film that stays off the ground more than on it. Howard Keel is very sexy as her favorite pilot (Mike #1, as I affectionately call him). Keel has, in other movies--especially his musicals--displayed a tendency to overact. Not so in this picture, in which he is extremely masculine and likeable. Van Johnson, who has had the same problem, is very sweet here. For some reason I have never bought into the ultra-suave characters he has played in other films, such as the ones with Esther Williams, but he is adorable as a cute nerd. Mike #3 is the one that virtually no one cares about, and I can't remember who plays him for the life of me. It is actually difficult to predict who Jane will end up with, which is refreshing. I alternated between rooting for Howard and Van, but I think the best man wins out in the end. Please watch this movie! You'll love it!

Jane Wyman is the all American Girl next door as she plays an American Airlines Stewardess during the Golden Age of Aviation. Share in the adventure as she manages to get in all kinds of trouble as she falls for three guys named Mike. A must have Classic for all Jane Wyman fans and airline enthusiasts.

A jaunty and humorous romp with early screen debuts that tickle and tease, and delight any and every American Airline Stewardess or Captain working for the company. A delightful gift, and a real giggle for the Airline Professional in your family or acquaintance. Don't miss this classic dream for every young girl growing up in 50's America!

The movie is great fun, but the producers of this DVD really made it a "no-frills" product--not even a menu for scene selection.

Overall the service was good, the movie came quickly, and the movie itself is enjoyable. I'm a Howard Keel fan, which prompted me to buy the movie, and he does a fine job as one of the Mikes interested in Jane Wyman.

Great period comedy about a feisty young woman in search of a career as a stewerdess (and a husband). This is a 'don't miss' for fans of Jane Wyman. As an airplane buff, I found the airliner/airport scenes wonderful. Great production values and costumes.

Funny and smart, a "great escape"! Jane Wyman really lights up the screen! I was a stewardess in 1964/65 and this movie brought back memories of a time when "service with a smile" meant something!

We remember the important films from the Fifties, but have mostly forgotten the thousands of "A" pictures such as "Three Guys Named Mike". We actually remember the B-pictures better (and Mystery Science Theater 3000 has ensured that we won't forget them). But a movie like this one now sits in eternity's remainder bin. The poor quality of the video and audio on Prime's streaming service is testimony to the film's long residence in the public domain. Yet "Three Guys" was an MGM picture, A-list all the way, starring A-listers like Jane Wyman and Van Johnson, along with MGM's up-and-comers like Howard Keel and Barry Sullivan. A movie about a stewardess, American Airlines allowed the studio free use of their airplanes in exchange for the free advertising. We even catch a glimpse of authentic training for the flight attendants of the day. The planes were certainly the only thing that appeared to excite director Charles Walters: his camera moves lovingly around the impressive silver birds, and it moves with agility from corner to corner of the set's simulation of the plane's interiors (realistically cramped). Other than that, Walters' compositions suggest that his camera was bolted to the floor for the regular interior shooting. The camera never moves; the actors stand rigidly on their marks.

It's two movies, really. The first movie is a realistic depiction of day-to-day life in a commercial airplane, circa 1951. Bemused viewers in 2015 will marvel at the way flight attendants took down your name in order to address you personally during the flight's service.
