Too Much Lady Luck
11 February 2007 | by (Flushing, NY) – See all my reviews

Captain Robert Dayton, former World War I ace, has started Sky Raiders, Inc. plane manufacturing and has created a new stealth flier. This plane has also caught the eye of Felix Lynx, enemy spy, who wants the plane to sell to a foreign power. Lynx' confederates try to capture the plane or get Dayton to give them the plans, but Dayton, and friends Ed Carey, secretary Mary Blake, and young flier Tim Bryant foil their pursuits. The serial is way too short on plot and character utilization, but goes way heavy on footage of stunt flying and way too much plot padding (especially from a early 40's Universal) Woods does not seem to be the effective serial lead (but that's mainly because of plot), Ciannelli is hardly in the serial enough to be effective, and the rest of the cast is only ho hum. The plot could have been filled out more if the villains were Nazis or Fifth Columnists, but its very weak here. The cliffhangers are practically all car or plane crashes, and even has one w/ Dayton jumping out of a low flying plane without a scratch or bruise. Rating, based on serials, 4.
