'Buddy" Rogers stands his ground and masters flying...
25 July 2002 | by (Easley, SC) – See all my reviews

In what was probably a quickie timed to beat Fox's 'Four Devils' into the theatres, writer/director George Abbott fashions his best effort. With F. W. Murneau's highly anticipated follow-up to 'Sunrise' in production simultaneously, much of the camera movement in this trapeze artist talker is owed to the prestige oozing from down the street. The film opens with a horrible accident, splendidly photographed. Soon after, the heroine (and the audience) discover the truth, but all involved seem powerless to bring the truth to light. Then, Charles 'Buddy' Rogers arrives, and in a plot twist untypical for this era, he remains resolute in his beliefs. His character's strengths steal the film. I won't spoil the fun, but Paul Lukas does a dead-on Bela Lugosi impression throughout the film. And 'Buddy' didn't even need his 'Wings'.
