Trivia

The failure of the original copyright holder to renew the film's copyright resulted in it falling into public domain, meaning that virtually anyone could duplicate and sell a VHS/DVD copy of the film. Therefore, many of the versions of this film available on the market are either severely (and usually badly) edited and/or of extremely poor quality, having been duped from second- or third-generation (or more) copies of the film.

Go Tailspin!
10 November 2005 | by (Vancouver) – See all my reviews

I'll admit, I enjoyed Danger Flight more than I care to admit. This tale, rather bizarrely nicely sliced into two stories, focuses on Tailspin Tommy Thompkins, a pilot who's not really a superhero, sometimes takes bad advice, falls into stupid traps, and fails to win any fights he's in. I guess this is what makes him so appealing. Anyways, this story essentially follows some dark shady character's attempt to steal the payroll shipment that Tommy is delivering. In the first half, we have a nifty story about how a kid named Whitey (!!) is reformed and how Tailspin is no good at flying at night! The second half, Tailspin falls for a stupid trap and has to rely on others (namely the police) to help get him out of the jam he's in. (he's conveniently knocked out). Full of funny process shots, hooty dialogue, (Betty: "The visibility is zero!" Chief: "Yeah, that's pretty low!") but has an amazing sense of heart and thrills about it, Danger Flight is a pleasant surprise!
