Jet Job Details


The perfunctorily titled Jet Job is an updated retelling of the old one about the hotshot test pilot who learns the value of being a team player. Stanley Clements stars as Joe Kovak, whose recklessness and refusal to follow orders causes no end of trouble for his superiors. Fired by boss Sam Bentley (John Litel), Joe takes a job with Bentley's competitor Oscar Collins (Tom Powers). After a suspicious jet-plane crash, Joe is grounded on Collins' say-so. In fact, it was Collins' own negligence that caused the crash, but no one will listen to Joe's side of the story. Redemption is at hand, however, and Joe clears his name during a death-defying test flight for the army. Co-starring as Joe's love interest is Elena Verdugo, several years away from her weekly chores as Consuela on TV's Elena Verdugo. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
