Filmed a few months before and playing in theatres when Wiley Post and Will Rogers were killed in a plane crash in Point Barrow, Alaska in August, 1935: Barry Eldon is the owner of an airline company that is competing with a rival company for a lucrative air-mail contract with the government. While the other company is bigger and more profitable than Barry's line, the rival owner has hired a scientist that has perfected a ray-machine that will cause airplanes that its ray is directed at to lose their engine power and crash. Thed government and the public are losing faith in Eldon's line before he, aided by Renee Dupont, can find out what is causing his airplanes to crash. (Wiley Post flys through on a cross-country stratosphere flight.) Written by

Pioneering airline runs up against competition that plays rough, using DEATH RAY to cut down the odds. Usual story told quickly (68 minutes) and well done by COLUMBIA (now thats a surprise). Ralph Bellamy (airline owner) leads competent cast that includes Douglas Dumbrille (sleazy villain) and Victor Kilian (reporter). Edward Van Sloan does his mad scientist act inventing what today would be called a Particle Beam Weapon. These airplane (or aeroplane) films done in the 1930's are usually very fun to watch because of the equipment which by todays standards seems ludicrous. You must admire after watching these films the early flight pioneers. One (1) featured in this film is Wiley Post who would die in a air crash soon after with Will Rodgers.
