A Yank in the RAF(1941).

A Yank in the RAF(1941). Directed by Henry King, and is considered a typical early-World War II movie. Though it came out in September 1941, months before the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, the movie features an arrogant American pilot (Tyrone Power) who joins the Royal Air Force in England. Not to defend England but to find former girlfriend (Betty Grable), who is assisting in an air-raid drill. As time goes on, his motivations change and he begins to realize what the Allies are fighting for. You can not have a Betty Grable movie without a few song and dance numbers. I have only seen bits and pieces of the movie, A Yank in the RAF. But, what I have seen, it looks like a good film.
