God Is My Co-Pilot DVD Description
A rousing wartime drama, based on the autobiography of Col. Robert Lee Scott, Jr., a decorated Flying Tiger fighter pilot. Colonel Scott was operating cargo planes over the Himalayan Hump. He dreamed of serving his country more directly, but was originally told he was too old. Scott eventually convinced a superior to allow him and his Flying Tigers to fly combat missions to assist the Chinese against Japan. Dennis Morgan stars as the unlikely hero, but the show is stolen by Raymond Massey as Major General Chennault. The supporting cast is filled with notable character actors including Richard Loo as Scott's nemesis, Tokyo Joe. The film is filled with philosophical questions about fate and survival during war and what role faith plays. In its original release in 1943, some gory sequences passed through the Production Code because the violence shown is all against the Japanese, America's enemy.
