For every new, experimental airplane, one person must be brave enough to be the first to fly the craft—to see if the plane will really stay in the air. The one to tell everyone who follows him how to fly the machine. The pilot with the right stuff. Clark Gable and Spencer Tracy star with Myrna Loy in this high-tension drama of hard-drinking, high-flying test pilot Jim Lane (Gable) and his best friend, Gunner Morris (Tracy). On a test flight, Lane literally crashes into the life of Ann Barton (Loy), and the two fall in love. But love and marriage for Lane only complicate life for the two pilots.
