Did You Know?


Monogram Pictures chiefs Trem Carr and W. Ray Johnston had just reformed the studio after having had an unhappy merger for two years with Herbert J. Yates Republic Pictures. This film was conceived as a low-budget feature meant to capitalize on Dick Merrill's and Jack Lambie's historic "Coronation Flight", which made them world-famous. See more »

Rather dull.
3 January 2016 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

In the 1920s and 30s, the types of heroes that the public latched onto were quite different than today. A great example were aviators. Nowadays, no one cares much about pilots but back in the day, they were among the most celebrated folks of the day. Take the stars of "Atlantic Flight", Dick Merrill and Jack Lambie. While it's obvious they couldn't act (particularly Merrill), they landed these roles because they were real life pilot and co-pilot who set some flying records. In fact, their life-saving flight at the end of this very dull film is taken from their real life Atlantic flight. And to give the two an excuse to do this, a friend is injured in a wreck and the doctor intones "If he were in England, he might have a chance"...and the pair race there to return with some serum. The bottom line is that although Merrill and Lambie's exploits were exciting in real life, they sure aren't here!! Tiny Monogram Studio tried but failed in making these guys matinée idols...and I can easily see why.
