Two films; splitting[edit]

The article should either be split between the two films, or should more clearly differentiate between them. The 1938 remake is generally considered a masterpiece, the 1930 first production is largely forgotten.

Also, where is the credit to John Monk Saunders?

Fair use rationale for Image:DawnPatrol1930.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:DawnPatrol1930.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Not legal to view?[edit]

".. when it finally became legal for it to be viewed once again."

Why wasn't it legal to view the movie? Had this anything to do with the Motion Picture Production Code? If so, I guess this only applies to the US audience? And when was this ban lifted? --Antheii (talk) 13:37, 20 September 2011 (UTC)


I intend to revise the article substantially. Comments? FWiW Bzuk (talk) 15:32, 11 August 2012 (UTC).

Cast in Photo[edit]

In the photo of the three actors by the plane, the man on the right is not Neil Hamilton (who played Major Brand). It looks like Gardner James, who played Ralph Hollister. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:42, 25 August 2012 (UTC)
