Like the film "Mission to Moscow" its purpose was to boost support for our Russian ally. It opens as a lighthearted semi-musical, but then abruptly erupts in violence and stark tragedy as the Nazis attack, invade and occupy a peaceful Ukrainian village. Corny at times, over the top at times, yet there is no denying this film's power. Directed by Lewis Milestone. Released in 1943 (see Special Note). Complete print.

Mit der 1941 produzierten turbolenten Fliegerkomoedie "QUAX, DER BRUCHPILOT" sorgte Hauptdarsteller Heinz Ruehmann dafuer, dass die Deutschen auch waehrend den Gegebenheiten des Zweiten Weltkrieges etwas zu lachen hatten. Dies ist allerdings nicht ganz unumstritten, weil viele in der Glorifizierung eines Fliegerhelden zuviel Propaganda fuer das damalige Nazi-Regime sahen.
