Spirit of St. Louis

I just watched this on T.V. the other day. It was not a bad film, though certainly not up there with Double Indemnity or the Apartment. Jimmy Stewart is great in it, though in any of his films I can't help but see Jimmy Stewart. I don't see Charles Lindberg, I see Jimmy Stewart...if that makes sense. I found it interesting that Billy Wilder directed this film, though it's not his usual type of film. But he inserts some humorous dialogue which makes you know it's a Billy Wilder film.
I recommend it if you can find it.
Has anyone else seen it?
