The Spirit of St. Louis Movie Review

Charles Lindbergh and Jimmy Stewart -- "Americana" doesn't have a better definition than these two larger-than-life characters. The film is a straightforward tale of the making of Lucky Lindy, focusing on his 1927 Trans-Atlantic flight from New York to Paris, 33 1/2 harrowing hours that inaugurated the era of flight. Billy Wilder's movie isn't particularly daring in its telling, but as a piece of American -- and world -- history, The Spirit of St. Louis is something everyone should see.
