Storyline

Mickael GoUpSkey, a foreign agent, is aboard a train en route to purchase planes for his country's military. A.C. Walrus, an agent for a rival country, is also aboard that same train and is ordered by his government to stop GoUpSkey from making that purchase at whatever cost. National security takes a back seat for Walrus when he meets and pursues a beautiful young woman on the train, she to who the foreign agent is also attracted. Walrus eventually learns that she is the daughter of the plane manufacturer and an aviatrix in her own right. Mayhem ensues when Walrus is able to test fly the demonstration plane, with GoUpSkey in hot pursuit. But also in pursuit are the young woman her aviator boyfriend and the police, the latter who are dealing with the destruction caused by the Walrus/GoUpSkey battle. Written by Huggo

For 1915, it's pretty good and aviation buffs will love it.
1 May 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

For 1915, this is a pretty good film and the special effects, though very crude by modern standards, are excellent for the time. The quality of this film would compare favorably to the types of film shorts Chaplin was doing at the time.

Perennial silent comic Chester Conklin stars as a representative of his government trying to buy a plane away from a rival government. While there isn't as much slapstick in this Sennett film as you might expect, the action is pretty good and you get to see very rare scenes featuring a Curtis biplane and one other vintage plane--and aviation buffs will enjoy this.
