the plot: Classic schmaltz. Three stewardesses working for Polar Atlantic Airways, make regular flights between New York and Paris or Vienna. Along the way, one meets an impoverished Austrian baron who turns out to be a diamond smuggler. Another, a "Southern belle", develops a crush on the first officer of the airplane even though she takes issue with his morals. The third gets noticed by a multi-millionaire widower from Texas.

don't miss: how Miss Brewster aids in averting the cavetation.

extra bonus points: if you know what Dolores Hunt did with the rest of her life.
