Jet Pilot

A high-flying Cold War drama with American Air Force colonel John Wayne charged with looking after defecting Soviet pilot Janet Leigh. The pair fall in love, but Wayne begins to wonder if Leigh is actually a double agent. Many, many years in the making due to the maniacal tinkering by producer Howard Hughes (who reportedly lost $4 million on it - a massive sum back then), the film was deemed unreleasable upon completion; only when Universal-International took over distribution of a handful of RKO productions did it finally see the light of day.
