Another Great Florence Rice movie!
17 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Florence Rice gives another superb performance in this excellent comedy-mystery from 1935. The story, while being a little outrageous, is nonetheless a very gripping and interesting tale that keeps you interested. I suppose you have to really like old movies to appreciate the style of the day. What i have noticed about Florence Rice is that her acting is not dated or quaint but very believable even tho some of the other actors appear wooden or stuffy. Conrad Nagel, as the man she meets on the plane, also responds to the beautiful Florence. The story is a nurse, Florence, and a doctor are wrongly imprisoned. Florence gets paroled but must remain in California or violate parole. She learns that a criminal in Sing Sing (New York) has information that will clear her and the doctor. She violates parole by flying to New York to try to get a confession before he is executed. Its on the plane that she meets Conrad Nagel. One murder and one attempted murder on the plane cause her real identity to be known. A lot of the story takes place on a commercial airliner. Its interesting to see what a commercial airliner looked like, inside, in 1935. The supporting players are very good, it seems to have been a strong ensemble. None of them are familiar but all contribute positively to the flow of the story. This is another buried treasure. Difficult to find but it needs to be seen.
