"Only Angels Have Wings" or "To Have and Have Not"???[edit]

I question the line: "In actuality, the premise of the show bears a much stronger resemblance to the 1939 film Only Angels Have Wings." While OAHW is one of my all-time favorite movies, this bears more similarities to the 1944 movie "To Have and Have Not":

The alcoholic sidekick who takes care of the craft (Walter Brennan's part); The girlfriend who's a singer (as was Lauren Bacall's part); This and "To Have and Have Not" both take place on tropical islands (OAHW took place in Colombia); Both deal with the war or the oncoming war and spies (OAHW deals with delivering the mail); The two leads (Collins and O'Heaney) have a relationship more in line with Bogart/Bacall than Grant/Arthur;

There are more, but I think the point is made.

Timeline[edit]

I question the encyclopedic value of the timeline. It seems on the order of fancruft to me. --OGoncho (talk) 00:17, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

How can the lead be an ex-Flying Tiger in 1938 if the Flying Tigers weren't formed until 1941 (see Wiki article on them)? Jmdeur (talk) 02:47, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

This series does not tale place in the real world but in an alternate timeline where the Flying Tigers were active in 1938. I like to think that Jake's adventures happen in the Wold Newton universe of Philip José Farmer. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Bijou88 (talkcontribs) 16:26, 24 April 2009 (UTC)
