Apparently part of a series, this is the only episode I have seen.
1 April 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Like many films made at the time in Hollywood, it's part sound/part silent. That's because with the advent of sound, many silent pictures had small portions re-shot with sound--and they were marketed as talking pictures--though much of the film is totally silent and uses intertitle cards. Here in "Flying High", the first portion is sound and the very end--and the rest silent.

The story is about a guy who is seen as a hero--crashing his plane to avoid hurting people on the ground. However, he was NOT the guy--but the real hero wants him to pretend to be the pilot. But, he has no idea how to fly and the other college students want to see him in action. So, they have an idea--they'll have him sit in the plane and pretend to fly when someone else is actually doing all the flying. Naturally, since this is a comedy, the whole thing backfires--but everyone insists that he is still a hero even after he tells them the truth. Cute and with a few clever moments--but not enough to make it a film I'd rush out to see.
