Storyline

Anny Hardy is a parachute-stunt diver with a flying-circus group of barnstorming pilots which her husband, "Speed" Hardy heads. She meets and falls in love with Bud Murray, the younger brother of her husbands partner "Ace" Murray, when they are teamed to do a double-parachute jump as a daily stunt. "Speed" learns about the romance, and in his half-crazed condition, from a World War I accident, he devises a scheme to get rid of Bub; he suggest to Bud that they pull a sensational stunt, zooming toward each other in their airplanes and then bailing out just before the two planes crash. But agrees but Bud does not known that "Speed" has cut the lines on his parachute. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Goofs

When Ann and Bud are out for their night flight in the fog, they set out with Bud sitting on the left and Ann on the right. When they run out of gas and are spiraling down, there is a brief shot showing them reversed in the cockpit. Then just after they land, they are back in their previous positions. See more »

Eric Linden Is Good
3 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Odd little B film about barnstormers and their rivalries.

Ralph Bellamy is boss of a two-bit barnstorming act that plays the midwest. He has his wife (Arline Judge) as an attraction and a partner/rival (Bruce Cabot). The loop the loop and swoop the ground and Arline eventually jumps out with a parachute. But then Cabot's kid brother (Eric Linden) shows up and the fireworks start.

Linden is immediately smitten with Judge, who is tired of bossy Bellamy. Bellamy and Cabot fight all the time but the act takes off when they devise a double jump for Judge and Linden. Although they hit the bigtime, Judge and Linden cheat on Bellamy and everyone is on a collision course.

Cliff Edwards co-stars as a boozy sidekick. The guys are all pretty good, but Judge can't act at all.
