Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

The principal interest today of this apparently lost First World War flying-and-spying drama is the brief appearance of Humphrey Bogart. He plays an American flyer in France who dies trying to shoot down a German observation balloon. After Bogie's demise, principal star Charles Farrell falls for his dead pal's widow Elissa Landi, who comes under suspicion of being a spy. The arrival of Myrna Loy, also claiming to have been Bogart's dame, complicates matters. The script is by Jules Furthman, who is notable for his work with directors Josef von Sternberg and Howard Hawks, but this film was directed by the lesser known Alfred Santell.
