The Rocketeer (1991)
Straight from the pages of a pulp comic from a past era, the Rocketeer recreates 1930’s Hollywood, complete with gangsters, Nazi spies, and the growth of the Age of Aviation. Young pilot Cliff Secord stumbles on a top secret rocket-pack and with the help of his mechanic/mentor, Peevy, he attempts to save his girl and stop the Nazis as The Rocketeer.

I love this film. Absolutely love it. Can’t help it. I’m a child of the 40s and this movie is about when I was a kid. The sets are great, the story is 40s, the cars, the cafe with the bizarre little gingerbread giving an impression of a gnome’s hangout, the costumes, the hero with his wiffle hair style, the airplanes and even Howard Hughes. What more could you want? No, this isn’t The Matrix with a lot of slick computer effects with mind twisting is it or isn’t it real. It’s clear who the bad guys are– and they’re bad, except when, of course, the mob types are swept away by patriotic feelings and fight the Nazis. It’s got it all. A wonderful trip back into the 40s with near superhuman villans, beyond the pale heros and lovable sidekicks.
