Storyline

The college aerial club is at the airfield to inaugurate a new glider. Alabam gets a lot of teasing for being a "land lizard," never wanting to fly. Mary takes him aside to boost his spirits and offers to take his photo if he'll sit on a glider parked nearby. Dave is ready to take the club's glider up, but Mickey hooks the wrong rope to his car and pulls Alabam into the air. He hasn't a clue what to do; below, Mickey and Dave try to shout instructions while the glider's owner gives chase. What goes up . . . Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

One of the worst Boy Friends films--all slapstick and no brains
25 November 2006 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is a FAR from a great short from Hal Roach Studio, and is another of a string of Boy Friends films. The Boy Friends series were akin to an older version of the Our Gang shorts and some of the actors were veterans of the other series (such as the be-freckled Mickey). At Roach, the Boy Friends were definitely lesser talents compared to Laurel and Hardy or even Charley Chase. As a result, their films generally are pretty forgettable and the laughs are fewer and father between. In fact, this one has among the fewest laughs of any Boy Friends films. This is because the film is all slapstick and absolutely no plot or characterizations. In many ways, it looks exactly like an old silent short but with a lot less energy or fun. The plot is exactly this--Alabama accidentally takes off in a glider and panics, so the gang does everything they can to rescue him. 'Nuff said about this sad and dull film.
