stalwart heroes face underhanded heavies in air action
The thirties, drifting unknowingly toward the horrors of WW2, provided the
context for these appropriately earnest young men to prove themselves by
successfully competing for a mail contract( it could have been anything of
value). The villains are devious and uncomplicated. The women chaste and
nearly helpless. The acting (especially Noah Berry, Jr and Grant Withers)
projects to the highest seat in the balcony. The flying sequences may be
best the film has to offer but on a Saturday afternoon in the mid-thirties
this was quite good enough, thank you. This film stands as a worthy example
of our sweet, innocent past.
