Despite a screenplay by Joseph L. Mankiewicz (among others), plus some really thrilling aerial stunt-work, this expensively produced "B" picture does not shape us as first-class entertainment. The main problems are the cliché-ridden script and a cast of players who seem to be relishing every corny moment rather than sending the whole thing up. Jack Oakie and Richard Arlen are the worst offenders, but – not to be outdone – Louise Closser Hale attacks her share of pathos with almost equal gusto. Just to complete the picture, there's a young boy in the cast, Bobby Coogan, who tackles his share of corny emoting with as much gusto as any of the grown-ups. But at least Virginia Bruce survives the movie with a bit of credit, as does Tom Douglas and most of the minor support cast. Stephen Roberts is credited as the director and it must be admitted that he does stage the action most effectively – if he did stage it at all. I suspect that some unsung specialist handled all the actual aerial and location scenes – or maybe they were pieced together from the stock library and it is actually a team of editors I should be thanking. There is no editor credit at all on the movie itself or at IMDb, which certainly indicates the wholesale use of stock material with everyone in the department hunting up suitable shots from Hollywood's many stock specialists. For all that, the actual crash is certainly well staged. I practically jumped out of my seat! The movie was formerly available on a very good VintageFilmBuff DVD.
