Feel the exhilaration of watching one of Hollywood's first ever comic strip
heroes onscreen. John Trent plays the legendary Tailspin Tommy in this classic
thriller, where he tries helping out a juvenile delinquent. Here is a complete
review of the film included in this incredible DVD. Trent as Tommy tries to help
some juvenile delinquents by getting them interested in model airplane building.
He encounters a special kid, Whitey, whom he literally takes under his wings. He
introduces him to the joys of building balsa wood and tissue model airplanes.
When Tommy crash-lands in a storm, the boy helps rescue him by using the
miniature plane as a signal to the search parties. The publicity that arises
from the rescue causes the formerly delinquent Baker to reevaluate his outlook
on life and reforms him from a rough speaking youngster to a caring and talented
friend. The kid's adult brother, who is up to no good, tricks Whitey into
helping him in the plots to rob a payroll flight. Whitey works out a way that
kids can give distress signals by having model planes do miniature skywriting,
which he also shows Tailspin. Faking a fatal accident Whitey's brother convinces
the former to get Tailspin to land using his smoke signal. Capturing Tailspin
Tommy and getting their hands on the payroll 'dough', the villains take Whitey
and Tailspin to their hideout, with no intentions of keeping them alive.
Tailspin and Whitey conspire a plan to save their lives and it is time for
another model airplane to save the day.
John Trent plays the brave and fearless pilot Tailspin Tommy, created by Hal
Forrest. One of the first aviation comic strips to appear in the nation's funny
pages was Tailspin Tommy, which made its debut in the spring of 1928. The comic
became outdated throughout the years, and was cancelled in 1942. This film
stands as a worthy example of our sweet, innocent past. It even has good special
effects. The plot moves along briskly.
This film, about the classic
daredevil aviator Tommy, was not only an adventure movie, but also filled with
educational information and aviation terminology.
