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 »

Flying Devils (1933)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

RKO drama has a carnival of flying daredevils at odds. The star pilot (Bruce Cabot) doesn't want his younger brother (Eric Linden) joining the troop but the crooked boss (Ralph Bellamy) talks him into it. Then the younger brother ends up falling in love with the bosses sweet wife (Arline Judge), which leads to a climatic showdown. Once again, I wasn't expecting too much out of this 60-minute "B" film but it turned out to be pretty entertaining due in large part to the cast. Bellamy was just getting his acting chops down but he adds to the entertainment as does Cabot who's as stiff as ever but it makes for a unique performance. The air flight scenes are very well done, although it's clear they're stock footage from another film.
