Hell's Angels (1930)

Starring Ben Lyon, James Hall, and Jean Harlow; directed by Howard Hughes

Two brothers from Oxford enlist in the RAF at the start of World War I; Monte Rutledge, a free-wheeling womanizer played by Ben Lyon, and Roy, his taciturn brother played by James Hall. The two volunteer for a risky bombing mission with little hope for success or survival.
