Released in 1941 (just a few short months before the Japanese actually attacked Pearl Harbor) - Dive Bomber (with its spectacular Technicolor photography of pre-WW2, U.S. Navy aircraft) was also something of a historical document showcasing the American military just prior to its involvement in the war.

Even though big-name stars such as Errol Flynn and Fred MacMurray headlined Dive Bomber's list of A-1 actors, it was, without a doubt, this film's vivid cinematography and its superb aircraft (both old and new), along with its wonderful flying sequences, that were the real stars of the show here. There's no question about it.

Regardless of Dive Bomber having a rather lengthy running time of 132 minutes, it was, for the most part, a very entertaining and interesting look at military aviation from yesteryear.This motion picture was directed by Michael Curtiz whose other notable films include The Adventures of Robin Hood, Casablanca, Mildred Pierce and White Christmas.
