Maybe I am too used to watch fast Paramount or Warner studios programmers; this Twentieth Century Fox one seems really a sleeper. It is although a B picture, adventure about pilots, as the story line describes it very well. So I won't tell it again, like a parrot. Eugene Forde made some very good Charlie Chan films, but this one - which is not a CC episode - is tepid at the most. And I think that short films must be very fast, nervous, action packed. I have no example of Warner or Paramount little movies, with a 70mn length, which have ever bored me. Metro Goldwyn Mayer, yes; but I am not sure the Lion's studio did ever make any B picture. But MGM style was not showing the most fast moving films... But it remains a worth little film for old Hollywood stuff buffs like me.
