This film recently discovered!!!!!
23 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

About five months ago a friend purchased prints at an estate sale and this was one of them!! THIS MAY CONTAIN SOME SPOILERS!!!!! A young flier, blinded in the war, has his girlfriend informed of his death, returns home and takes a job at an airfield. Harboring a great hatred for the industrialist who built the plane he crashed in, he often speaks of someday being able to kill him. When a chance meeting with a wealthy man forms a bond which eventually leads to an operation which restores his sight, the boy then learns who his benefactor is--but also finds out that the older man's new wife is the boy's former girlfriend. The acting is a bit static. James Kirkwood, who had a long career in films, plays Tullock the industrialist and gives a decent performance as a man who has everything, but at the same time, nothing. Ferdinand Schumann-Heink plays the blinded boy. Heink had a 20 year career in films, playing a large number of uncredited roles. All in all I'd give this one a 6 out of 10. But anytime you can erase a title from the "lost" list, it's a good thing. Bob Connors (yrkconnors@yahoo.com)
