1957 ... love-sick Duke!

... John Wayne pines away over the love of a hot, woman MIG pilot ( Janet Leigh ) who has defected to the West. She may be a double agent- what will the Duke do ?!?

Produced by Howard Hughes, 1957's 'Jet Pilot', remains one of the great debacles of Hollywood.  Absurd plot, embarrassing script. Hughes kept tinkering with it for so long that the jets were out of date when it was finally released.
