Starring Gary Cooper, Task Force glorifies the birth and development of the American aircraft carrier, up to the part it played in the Second World War.This is a story about a handful of naval air heroes who, in the early 1920s, seek to assert naval air power but are stymied for years by Washington politics and navy protocol. Eventually, through the aircraft carrier, they’re able to whip the rubber-stamp admirals by proving themselves in the Pacific during the war. Cooper is forthright as the naval hero, and Jane Wyatt is properly sacrificing as his wife.
