Storyline

This is an entry in Vitaphone's series of "Your True Adventures", featuring radio commentator and WWI war-correspondent Floyd Gibbons telling a tale written by one of the many amateur writers who submitted a story that would be made into one of the many two-reel shorts in this series. The authors, and this entries writer wasn't the first one, would "win" (read, be paid)$500 for their 'true-life adventure." This one was playing as a filler on the bill at NYC's Rialto Theatre on November 26th, 1937. The feature film being shown was Monogram's 1937 "Danger Patrol," starring Harry Carey, Sally Eilers and John Beal. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>
