The clip b-17 from 1941 (1979) with Tim Matheson, J. Patrick McNamara
Here he comes !
You have a telegram from Colonel Maddox, sir ?
Madman Maddox ?
What does he want ?
Troops ? It's a practice bombing range in Barstow in the middle of the desert.
What's he want troops for ? Give me that.
"Request emergency troops. Invasion imminent.
Suspect hidden Jap airfield in Pomona alfalfa fields."
I blame myself. I put that lunatic out there.
Jesus H. Christ, DuBois. Is that the General's new secretary ?
Yes, sir. She came in from G-2 this morning.
Not bad, huh ?
Not bad ? She's a goddess. A goddamn goddess !
That is Donna Stratton. I knew her back in Washington.
She has got this thing for planes.
One of those real high-flyin' types, huh ?
I've never seen anything like it.
She's got planes on the brain.
His brother had all those political connections in Georgia. What could I do ?
Tell him to hold his position. I'll send someone up there later .
Where's Birkhead ? He's supposed to have my lunch.
No man has ever gotten to first base with her on the ground.
But get her into a plane, she'll bat your balls right out of the park.
You can fly, sir ?
Who said anything about flying ?
I just gotta get her into that plane. I'll fake the rest.
Donna Stratton, after all this time. How long has it been ?
Not long enough.
You're not still sore, are you, Donna ?
Yes ! ln a number of places.
Same old Donna.
Listen, I got a great idea.
Why don't we get together for dinner tonight ? We got a lot to talk about.
