Edward G. Robinson,
Dr. Robert Cromwell performs a delicate operation, that has never been done before, and the patient dies. Charged with malpractice and manslaughter, his trial is national news but the jury acquits him. But the court of public opinion is still against him, and the medical board is meeting to decide whether or not to take his medical license away from him. Before they do, Cromwell, an amateur pilot, decides to join his friend, WWI Ace Donald Evans, on a flight to Alaska looking for a shorter route to Japan by following the Aleutian Islands. They crash in Alaska and Evans is killed, but Cromwell is rescued by a fur trapper named Tom Ross. He takes Cromwell to Armstrong's Trading Post, where is is nursed back to health by Klondike, a girl who works for Armstrong, and was engaged to marry Armstrong's son Jim. The latter is suffering from the same disease that Cromwell's last patient had. Mark talks Cromwell into performing the same operation again and, this time, it is a success. Or would ... Written by

At the airfield there is an advert for the Swallow Airplane Company which made a popular primary trainer in the twenties before going out of business at the end of the decade. More interestingly, Cromwell asks Evans if he can fly Charles Nungesser's aircraft which happens to be at the airfield. Nungesser was the third top Ace of the French air force in WWI, and noted for the "Knight of Death" shield on the side of his aircraft, visible in the picture. Nungesser vanished in 1927 while trying to fly the Atlantic non-stop a few week's before Lindberg. The aircraft appears to be a Hanriot HD-1 which is now on display at the Planes of Fame air museum in Chino, California. See more »
Solid little Monogram drama with very original story and denouement. Lyle Talbot, who would appear in anything, even a notorious Edward Wood picture, stars with considerable intelligence and sincerity. Hard-working Thelma Todd has a serious role and both leads are appealing together. Henry B. Walthall (another veteran who didn't know how to retire) supports, as does Gabby Hayes and Jason Robards Sr.
The start is a little shaky, with some awkward staging, but after it gets into its stride I can say that this has much to recommend it. The attitude of Klondike's cast, and its out-of-the-rut story, is what makes it all work.
