Bland Except for a Couple Performances and An Amazing Stunt

Air Hostess (1933)

** (out of 4)

Boring "B" movie from Columbia about air hostess Kitty King (Evalyn Knapp) who is protected by everyone who works in the aviation field because of her father's heroic work during WWI. This protection at times is too much and this here sends her into the arms of a man (James Murray) who might not be the best thing for her and especially after he starts to see a rich woman (Thelma Todd) who might be able to help him with his dream. AIR HOSTESS is a pretty bland and boring picture that manages to make the viewer incredibly tired through its 67-minute running time but I'd say the picture is still worth watching thanks to a few factors that I'll get to in a moment. The biggest problem with this film is its rather bland screenplay, which offers up the typical story of a good girl caught between two men and of course she picks the bad one, which means the viewer has to sit through countless scenes where she feels sorry for herself. This entire concept was pretty boring even by 1933 standards and the problem here is that there simply isn't anything fresh or original done. Had the screenplay at least given the viewer a few twists or turns then perhaps we could have put up with things but that never happens. There are a few good things going for the film and this includes the performance of Knapp who has been forgotten by most people but she's quite charming here. She's certainly cute to look at but she manages to take a blandly written character and bring her to life. I also thought Todd was very good in her role as the sexy other woman. Murray really doesn't do much in his role nor does Arthur Pierson. What makes the film worth watching is that we get to see some pretty good airplanes from the era and we also get a rather amazing stunt at the end of the picture. This stunt involves a couple planes trying to stop a train and I won't ruin what happens but it's quite thrilling.
