Film Notes

Back in Hollywood after a brief appereance in After All on Broadway, Bogart was the male lead opposite Dorothy Mackaill, a popular young star of the 1920s nearing the end of her career. She plays an heiress and he a poor aeronautical engineer anxious to get backing for a new engine he has designed, and he teaches her to fly. They fall in love, she loses her fortune, and tries to marry a wealthy broker so that he can have his funding, a plan that goes adrift. There is far too much story for so short a film, but Bogart handles his role creditably, including a life-saving race against time as the dramatic climax.
