When Hughes and the FBI demand the return of the rocket pack, Cliff explains that he needs it to rescue Jenny; he escapes using a scale model prototype of the Spruce Goose as a glider , but inadvertently leaves behind a clue to where he is headed.
Cliff flies to the rendezvous, where Sinclair demands for Cliff to hand over the rocket pack, but Cliff divulges to Eddie and his gang that the actor is a Nazi, and the evidence quickly backs Cliff up.
The infuriated Valentine and his gang turn their weapons on the seemingly off-guard Sinclair and Lothar, but Sinclair summons a troop of heavily armed Nazi S.
The Nazi rigid airship Luxembourg under the guise of a peace mission appears overhead to evacuate Sinclair.
FBI agents suddenly announce their presence, having secretly surrounded the area; they and the mobsters join forces to battle the Nazis.
Sinclair and Lothar escape, dragging Jenny with them aboard the airship. Cliff flies to and boards the airship, but during the ensuing showdown, Jenny accidentally sets the bridge on fire with a flare gun.
Sinclair holds Jenny hostage, forcing Cliff to give him the rocket pack, but not before he covertly removes the chewing gum patch, allowing fuel to leak near the rocket pack's exhaust.
Lothar is engulfed in flames as the airship explodes, but Cliff and Jenny are rescued at the last moment by Hughes and Peevy flying an autogyro.
Hughes later presents Cliff with a brand-new Gee Bee air racer and a fresh pack of Beemans gum. As Hughes leaves, Jenny returns Peevy's rocket pack blueprints, which she found in Sinclair's home; Peevy decides that, with some modifications, he can build an even better one.
Steve Miner purchased the film rights from Stevens in , but he strayed too far from the original concept and the rights reverted to Stevens.
Stevens liked that "their ideas for The Rocketeer were heartfelt and affectionate tributes to the s movie serials with all the right dialogue and atmosphere.
Most people would approach my characters contemporarily, but Danny and Paul saw them as pre-war mugs". Stevens, Bilson and De Meo began to consider making The Rocketeer as a low-budget film , shot in black-and-white and funded by independent investors.
Their plan was to make the film a complete homage to Republic's Commando Cody serials, and use a cast largely associated with character actors.
Stevens, Bilson, De Meo, and Dear began to pitch The Rocketeer in to the major film studios but were turned down. We got there about three years too early for our own good!
The Rocketeer was set to be released through the studio's Touchstone Pictures label; Stevens, Bilson, De Meo, and Dear all signed a contract which would permit them to make a trilogy of Rocketeer films.
According to Stevens, "immediately, Betty and anything else 'adult' went right out with the bathwater. They really tried to shoehorn it into a kiddie property so they could sell toys.
All they really wanted at the end of the day, was the name". Initially, Disney executives wanted to set the film in contemporary times, out of concern that a period piece might not appeal to a large audience.
Bilson and DeMeo argued that the success of the Indiana Jones trilogy proved that moviegoers would enjoy an adventure film set in the s, and the studio finally agreed.
Bilson and DeMeo then submitted their seven-page film treatment to Disney, but the studio put their script through an endless series of revisions.
Over five years, Disney fired and rehired Bilson and DeMeo three times. DeMeo explained that "Disney felt that they needed a different approach to the script, which meant bringing in someone else.
But those scripts were thrown out and we were always brought back on". Scenes that had been thrown out two years ago were put back in.
What was the point"? Joe Johnston , a fan of the comic book, immediately offered his services as director when he found out Disney owned the film rights.
Johnston was quickly hired and pre-production started in early The characterization of Neville Sinclair was inspired by movie star Errol Flynn , or rather by the image of Flynn that had been popularized by Charles Higham 's unauthorized and fabricated biography of the actor,  in which he asserted that Flynn was, among other things, a Nazi spy.
The film's Neville Sinclair is, like Higham's Flynn, a movie star known for his work in swashbuckler roles, and who is secretly a Nazi spy.
Because Higham's biography of Flynn was not refuted until the late s, the image of Flynn as a closet Nazi remained current all through the arduous process of writing and re-writing the script.
Casting the lead role of Cliff Secord was a struggle for the filmmakers. Johnny Depp was Disney's favorite choice,  while Paxton commented he came "really close" to getting the lead.
Johnston eventually convinced Disney otherwise. He also prepared by listening to s period music. The actor had a fear of flying but overcame it with the help of the film's aerial coordinator, Craig Hosking.
To ensure his safety, Campbell was doubled for almost all of the flying sequences in conventional aircraft.
Amand was used for all the rocket pack scenes. Lastly, the part of Eddie Valentine was written with Joe Pesci in mind, but he turned down the part, which went to Paul Sorvino.
Rocketeer creator Dave Stevens has a cameo as the German test pilot who is killed when the Nazis' version of a rocket backpack explodes during the takeoff sequence.
Principal photography for The Rocketeer lasted from September 19, to January 22, Disney, in particular, was not enthusiastic with Stevens' involvement.
And initially, I had to fight to prove that I was there for the benefit of the film, and not for my own ego". This happened after Disney became impressed with the dailies ; "they realized this was a bigger movie than they were anticipating", Johnston explained, "and they approved overages.
It never got completely out of control". Additional scenes were shot at Bakersfield. Aerial coordinator Craig Hosking remarked in an interview, "What makes The Rocketeer so unique was having several one-of-a-kind planes that hadn't flown in years",  including a Standard biplane and a Gee Bee Model Z racer.
Stevens gave the film's production designer Jim Bissell and his two art directors his entire reference library pertaining to the Rocketeer at that time period, including blueprints for hangars and bleachers, schematics for building the autogyro, photos and drawings of the Bulldog Cafe, [Note 5] the uniforms for the air circus staff, and contacts for locating the vintage aircraft that were to be used.
Stevens remembers that they "literally just took the reference and built the sets". Disney relented, but only after creating a number of prototype designs that were ultimately rejected by the filmmakers.
Stevens asked Johnston for one week to produce a good helmet design. He proceeded to work with a sculptor he knew, made a cast of the film's main stunt man's head and brainstormed ideas with the help of his sketches.
They produced a helmet that the filmmakers agreed looked appropriate from all angles; in most respects it was identical to the helmet design Stevens had used for his comics series.
The music for The Rocketeer was composed and conducted by James Horner. The soundtrack received positive reviews and is often mentioned as being one of the film's stronger elements.
An expanded edition was issued in by Intrada Records  The two songs were arranged by Billy May , who had collaborated with Horner several times in the past.
This was the first premiere to take place at the El Capitan in more than two years, due to an Art Deco -like restoration project Disney had been working on.
No special features were included on the later DVD release although the LaserDisc as had included the original theatrical trailer.
Outside the US and Canada, the film was released through Touchstone Pictures rather than Walt Disney Pictures , in an attempt to attract the teenage audience it did not reach in North America.
Rocketeer' s original Art Deco poster, artistically similar to a famous Yuri Gagarin 's monument, was changed because it failed to draw attention to the cast, including then-current James Bond , Timothy Dalton.
The new advertising campaign was being designed while the British promotional campaign for the film was already under way and some theaters still had the stylized United States film poster.
The film received positive reviews from critics. The site's consensus states: "An action-packed, if anachronistic, look back at pulp matinee serials, The Rocketeer may ring hollow with viewers expecting more than simple fun and gee-whiz special effects.
Roger Ebert enjoyed the film, noting its homages to the film serials of the s—s. Dalton has fun as a villain patterned after Errol Flynn".
Internet reviewer James Berardinelli commented that " The Rocketeer may not be perfect, but it's an excellent example of how to adapt a comic book to the screen".
She called The Rocketeer "a benign adventure saga that has attractive stars, elaborate gimmicks and nice production values—everything it needs except a personality of its own".
Maslin believed that by setting the story in , the filmmakers were more interested in the Art Deco production design and visual effects instead of imbuing the storyline with "inspiration, which may be why it finally feels flat".
Rosenbaum also cited the casting decision of character actors as being too practical. I also thought Joe's casting choices were excellent.
To his credit, Joe did not fill out the cast with a bunch of Beverly Hills, Barbie and Ken -type kids". Stevens found Billy Campbell to be "a good-looking guy, but he also happens to be Cliff!
I would never have cast him based on good looks alone, but he came into the audition and just nailed it shut. He was made for it. The part was his".
The Rocketeer is one of many films to have been featured in a "Movies by Minute" podcast, wherein hosts and guests discuss one minute of a film per episode until the entire film has been dissected.
Billy Campbell became recurring guest host on the podcast as well. It focuses on Kit Secord, the 7-year-old great granddaughter of Cliff who receives the jetpack and becomes the new Rocketeer.
From the beginning of the process of making The Rocketeer , creator Dave Stevens and screenwriters Danny Bilson and Paul De Meo envisioned it as the first entry of a trilogy.
Although the calls for a sequel remain unrequited, as with many films of this genre, the film has built up a cult following  in both the United States and Japan, where until , Medicom, a major toy manufacturer, issued two versions of 12" poseable action figures and replica helmets based on the film.
As of [update] , Disney was reported to be developing a remake of The Rocketeer. It was reported that The Rocketeers will be a "reboot sequel" that takes place six years after the original film with a black female pilot in the lead role.
The film's plot sees the lead take on the mantle of The Rocketeer after Cliff Secord has gone missing while fighting the Nazis.
The new Rocketeer goes on a mission to stop a corrupt scientist from stealing jetpack technology and shifting the balance of the Cold War.
