William Bytho, Charles Bickford and Sir Cedric Hardwicke, opens today at> the Loew Poli theater. In tradition of "Crash 'Dive" which paid stirring tribute to our undersea fighters, and "Guadalcanal Diary," the rousing salute to our Marines; "Wing And A Prayer" celebrates the deeds of the men who are wreaking havoc and vengeance on the Japs from the mighty "floating air-bases." The film tells the story of aa unidentified aircraft carrier which in the early days of shock and confusion following Pear! Harbor, was sent into the Jap-infested PaciMc and marked as expendable. Ordered to sea with orders to avoid combat, to run away and not fight, back—this bewildered and frustrated force of Navy flyers to take everything the Japs can throw at them without retaliation because they wore setting a trap. With the strategic trap for the Japs set, and the orders to avoid combat rescinded the day of revenge for Carrier X arrives. Look out!

Ho came into the fairway business as something of a frealc—a guy who tried to win top-flight tournaments -with drugstore golf balls. But he didn't take long .to prove that he knew how nnd whore to hit those balls—and that's what counts. Sportscastcrs and writers always lilted io see t.he North Carolina boy enter a tournament. They knew there'd be color and excitement with Johnny Bulla around. And Johnny seldom disappointed them. He's unpredictable on the links. His long, clrivinp pjame has always been tops—but on the short shots Johnny lias trouble. Sometimes he has n little trouble holding his temper down, too. Back in 1910 Johnny started in the Land of the Sky Open tournament at Ashcvlllc, N. C. For a playinK partner he drew the slow und steady Ralph Guldahl. Every professional who made Im annual round of tournaments ,;:iew of Guldahl—knew how much time he took on his shots, und how; lowly he played. But it was left for Johnny to break. After eleven holes Johnny just picked up his ball and stormed back to the clubhouse, Bulla ragW: "JSycrybody can lake his lime on a shot—but this g-uy was driving me nuts!" An:l .ilthouph everyone liked the good- latured Guldahl— most of them ciuielly agreed with Bulla. Johnny's k'°'f career was a strange one. In IMS he headed for Chicago to see the National Open and look iifound for a job. On the way he stopped off at a driv- £ ran^e — one oC those places nere i^u cents gets you a pail ot bails to whale away at—and Johnny started swinging. Two - hundred 1 - and - twenty five yards from the tec was a fence. And Johnny's drives kept dropping over that barrier. The proprietor came ovor to watch the husky slranser.— and when he jaw another couple of. drives clear ihe fence Johnny had a job. Later he got regular golf ]>io jobs al clubs. And at one of them he met the owner of a chain of drug stores. Once again Johnny rmiue a deal — this time he went lo work for the drug chain as head of the golf ball department. Thai connection kept, him from joining 1 Ihe Pi-jfc.ssiona! Golfer's association. But it didn't make much difference. Johnny took his •lO-cunt-specials and started / playing sensational golf around the lOurP.amcni. circuit. He didn't win any major tou:-nu.ments — but he turned in some heart-stopping performances In almost taking' some important titles. Johnny had the United Slates Open aln-jjst in his bag at Philadelphia in 1939—but he lost his touch on the last round and dropped to sixth. And Johnny's bkizitig 292 over the St. An- tirew.s course nearly gave him -'the British Open thai same year—but Dick Burlor. came in late to beat nim out by two strokes. So when Johnny took his drug-, store bails to the Los Angeles Open they tabbed him as :a good man—but no ir.o're than that—not a winner. And even when he started out with a string of seven throes, -they didn't pay too much attention to him. At the half-way point Johnny Bulla led the field in that rich" $10.000 competition. But still the hangers-on held back arid said: "Watch—he'l hil a bad streak and blow il." And in the third round it seemed that, they had called it correctly. Somehow Johnny got mixed up.
