This is, apparently, the second version of the same story. Just this weekend Jamie and I were discussing reboots and relaunches, and I made some noise about "well, they've always remade popular stuff" and this is a pretty good example. The first version of The Dawn Patrol from 1930, I have not seen. This remake comes from just eight years later with a shift in casting as Elynn, Niven and Rathbone step in front of the lens.
The Dawn Patrol has curious timing - released in 1938 as the US was watching Germany roll over Europe. It's an anti-war film, and I found the Wikipedia entry on the film a bit odd, shrugging it's shoulders and saying they were romanticizing combat aviation because of high numbers of deaths, etc... that were part of the genre but gave it kudos for showing the scars of the commanders sending out the untrained pilots.
