Cloud Dancer is a 1980 US drama film directed by Barry Brown. It stars David Carradine, Jennifer O'Neill and Joseph Bottoms. The film follows a competition aerobatic pilot. It had its premiere in Milwaukee on 29 May 1980.


Brad Randolph (Carradine) is the World Champion aerobatic pilot but now, in his early 40s, he faces many challenges to maintain his position. His physical struggles are heightened by the presence of a youthful competitor, Tom Loomis (Bottoms). Intertwined with Brad's professional struggles is his relationship with Helen St. Clair (O'Neil).[1]

The film's technical advisor was former World Champion aerobatic pilot, Tom Poberezny. Crowd scenes were also shot at actual air shows in the Phoenix area.[1]
