French title : Les espions s'amusent
John Wayne (Col Shannon)
Janet Leigh (Anna)
Air Force Colonel Shannon is assigned to escort defecting Soviet pilot Anna. He falls in love with her, but she is scheming to lure him back to the USSR. But Shannon has a scheme of his own.
"Glamorous Glennis" made her last flight (with Chuck Yeager at the controls) for this movie on May 12th, 1950.
Same aircraft in other movies at IMPDb: Frequently Seen Aircraft.
A T-33 wearing a 6 red is playing a "Yak 12 which looks like a T-33" as said the pilot to Colonel Shannon (as John Wayne is named).
Later seen weathered with a 2 red on a different paint scheme.
Note the two machine guns. Usually T-33s didn't have nose armament and P-80s did have a set of six.
The prototype XF-89 can be seen by short sequences.
Acting too a (Soviet ?) fighter (no national markings but a red vertical stabilzator painted with some pale blue trying to modify the shape).
