In the part where the speeding train is shown in the near background, there is no smoke whatsoever emitting from the locomotive's smokestack. Yet in the next shot, taken from a different angle, the locomotive is shown emitting a steady plume of dark smoke. See more »
A pilot (Chester Morris) is asked by a woman (Sally Eilers) to take a small child (Scotty Beckett) across the border into Mexico so that his mother doesn't lose him in a custody battle with his evil aunt. The pilot agrees to do it for the money but soon he begins to grow fond of both the child and woman. This was a fairly decent "B" picture that features a nice cast doing fine work but the film would eventually run out of steam before it could really pack any sort of punch. Being a major fan of Morris added some entertainment as he is a constant joy to watch. The screenplay offers him very little but he manages to have some nice comic touches and his chemistry with Eilers is right on the mark. Former Our Gang star Beckett certainly delivers a lot of charm and cuteness in his role as the kid and it's rather shocking to see the young kid here who would grow up to have a very destructive lifestyle. After seeing him here it's still rather shocking to see how his life would end. The film has a lot going on in the first thirty-minutes and this is where the film is at its most charming. Everything possible happens and the director keeps everything moving at a fast pace but things come crashing down when Henry Travers character enters the film. After this things slow down and eventually crash at the end. The most shocking thing is the ending where we see the three stars in blackface.
