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

Dizzy Heights and Daring Hearts (1915)

*** (out of 4)

This Keystone comedy features a total of zero laughs but it's still very much worth watching. The plot is pretty simple as Chester Conklin plays a government man who's sent to buy a plane but when he gets there he realizes that a rival is also wanting to buy it. That's all I'll say about the "plot" because there's really not too much of it but DIZZY HEIGHTS AND DARING HEARTS is very much worth seeing for a number of reasons. The biggest is that the final ten-minutes or so is pretty much an action picture as all sorts of crazy things happen. There are all sorts of aerial shots that look rather great considering it was 1915 but they also mix this with models and various other techniques to tell the story. It's obvious how some of the special effects were done but that doesn't take away from the fun. This includes some bits where Conklin is dropping some bombs from the plane. We get a shot of the bombs falling through the air and then we see their impact on the ground. This is where the model use comes into play because we see all sorts of things get blown up. We also get a daring rescue towards the end of the film when a man is stuck on a tower that is about to fall. All of these scenes are wonderfully directed but the editing is perhaps the best I've seen from this period outside a D.W. Griffith film. Film buffs will certainly want to check this one out.
