Advertisement, 1956, Toward The Unknown

Toward the Unknown, 1956 - "This high-flying thriller uses footage of the USAF Thunderbirds in action--an interesting and authentic look into the world of Air Force test pilots. Set at Edwards Air Force base in California, the story centers on a dishonored pilot who is no longer allowed to fly. It seems that as a Korean POW he was brutally tortured and brainwashed until he could bear no more and he eventually cracked. Though it has been many years, he wants to clear his name and fly again. Unfortunately a general fears the pilot could again lose it during the testing of a highly experimental plan. Fortunately, the general's secretary is the former girl friend of the pilot and she convinces the general that he is rock solid. The pilot then sets out to prove it for himself. James Garner made his big screen debut in this film."

Wow--and back then James Garner was a HUNK! Even as an old guy he's still pretty good looking. Wrinkles look good on old guyz. (grin) Too bad for us ladies, eh?
