Desperate Journey

One of the series of World War II propaganda films—Northern Pursuit, Objective, Burma!—that provided Raoul Walsh with one of his most fertile motifs, the struggle to move from point A to point B. Errol Flynn and Ronald Reagan are American pilots downed behind enemy lines; their flight back to London is gracefully philosophized by Walsh's deep-focus camerawork, which makes a moral imperative out of the crossing of space. Instinctive existentialism of a very high order, and a very entertaining adventure (1942). With Alan Hale, Nancy Coleman, Raymond Massey, and Arthur Kennedy. 107 min.
