Creaky early talkie aviation picture.
24 April 2004 | by MozjoukineSee all my reviews

This lumbering early sound film can be added to the roll call of aviation movies of the day - WINGS, DAWN PATROL, LAST FLIGHT, DEVIL'S SQUADRON, EAGLE AND THE HAWK.

This time it's barnstorming airmen, making the film a curious comparison with THE GYPSY MOTHS. The cast combines the talents of silent movie leading men Hughes (Ella Cinders, Lost World) and Kerry (Hunchback of Notre Dame), John Ford's resident heavy Churchill and technicians who would later work in the serials. Neither the performances or the handling create much interest but it is curious to hear the leads' voices and the subject and it's small town USA setting deliver some interest.
