The Russian Movie Star

Sylvester Metzetti and his two brothers Otto and Victor were born into a German circus family. They were trained acrobats performing death-defying stunts with ease.

Sylvester had the ‘Hollywood’ face and personality, and he changed his name to Richard Talmadge for his acrobatic action movies like this one.

Thanks to the Hollywood movie monopolies that were growing stronger during his early acting years, his appearances in movies produced by a small independent film company were blocked from appearing in most cinemas in America . . . . But he became a famous face in Russia during the 1930’s.

Most of his movies, like this one, are very light in story plot, and very heavy in exciting action acrobatics that need no translation . . . . a perfect formula for success on Russian movie screens.

In this adventure Talmadge is an airplane pilot during the first years of flight, and he is in love with the daughter of an inventor who is creating a new generation airplane.

A gangster and his goons are after the detailed drawings of the new plane, and will steal not only the drawings but also the plane itself.

That’s it for the story line, the rest of the show is filled with fast action chases and clashes with motorcycles, cars, and finally an airplane chase that includes Talmadge jumping from one plane to another in mid-air.

The real acrobatic stunts performed by Talmadge were designed to thrill, and they do not disappoint. By the way, two of the gangster’s henchmen, wearing white beret style caps are Otto and Victor, the brothers of Richard Talmadge. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
