RKO’s The Lost Squadron (1932) is a war movie that isn’t a war movie. Veterans return home to find work as Hollywood stunt fliers under Erich von Stoheim’s command. Starring Richard Dix, Robert Armstrong, Joel McCrea, Hugh Herbert, Mary Astor and Dorothy Jordan. Directed by George Archainbaud.
See The Lost Squadron free at the Paramount Theater in 1932–if you could figure out this contest. A peek at Depression era classifieds and old time prices in this preview of my coming post about The Lost Squadron.
