Hell Divers (1931) George W. Hill, Clark Gable, Wallace Beery, Conrad Nagel

Hell Divers 1931
Clark Gable takes off in his first starring role, a high-flying action-adventure costarring Wallace Beery and directed by George Hill (Tell It to the Marines). Once friendly rivals, Naval airmen Windy Riker (Beery) and Steve Nelson (Gable) are now the bitterest of enemies. Stationed on the USS Saratoga, the two battle over planes, dames and who’s top gun in their squad. But when Steve crashes on a rocky island and badly shatters his leg, Windy risks his life to save his ex-friend, a rescue mission from which they may never return.

Story of rivalry between 2 Navy aircrewmen on and off duty.

Director: George W. Hill
Cast: Wallace Beery, Clark Gable, Conrad Nagel, Dorothy Jordan, Marjorie Rambeau, Marie Prevost, Cliff Edwards, John Miljan, Landers Stevens, Reed Howes, Alan Roscoe, Frank Conroy, Virginia Bruce, John Kelly, Eric Alden, John George, Pat O’Malley, Jack Pennick, Buddy Roosevelt, Charles Sullivan, Niles Welch, Robert Young

This typically polished MGM effort features one of its established actors – Beery – opposite new kid on the block Gable (before he was old enough to grow a moustache). It’s one of few films the pair made together, reportedly because they never really hit it off (Beery is said to have even turned down a role in MGM’s Mutiny on the Bounty because he didn’t want to work with Gable). Then again, Beery, a lovable old lug on the screen, was a fairly unpleasant character in real life, with rumours of manslaughter, meanness and abuse of women and children surrounding him to this day.

The film’s plot could take place anywhere and at anytime really. That was the beauty of the studio product in the 30s: they could just keep churning out the same story with a different cast set in a different period and the masses would happily pay the money to watch them all. This one features some terrific aerial shots of old biplanes and some truly bizarre heroics (Gable hanging upside down from a plane with one hand holding a bomb to prevent it from exploding when the plane lands for instance). There are a few funny moments too, the best of which is the incidents that lead to Beery and Gable duking it out just minutes after having finally made friends.
