"Only Angels Have Wings" or "To Have and Have Not"???
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.
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 (talk • contribs) 16:26, 24 April 2009 (UTC)
