Dogfight with a Winged Demon

Airplanes were first used for war during World War One, which ended in 1918, and stories of the flying ace Manfred von Richthofen, better known as the Red Baron, became legend and helped excite many a young boy and girl about these new and amazing flying machines. In 1936 when this movie was filmed the war had been over for more than a decade but interest was still high as airplanes entered civilian use, so you can imagine the excitement at the box office for a thriller like this one. A big black plane marked only with a large 'X' is shooting down aircraft and leaving no survivors or witnesses, except for one dying man who describes the black plane with the big X. The Goering aircraft factory is building good planes but they keep getting shot down by Pilot X, and father Henry, played by Henry Hull, along with son Carl, played by Leon Ames, are visited by a Government man investigating the crimes. We also meet a scientist, Doctor Norris, who has a plan to catch the winged demon in the act. He sets up a secret room at the mansion of the aircraft owner and invites the five retired WWI flying aces that live in the area to spend the weekend at the house. From his secret room with sliding peep holes and a big blinking machine that will tell what rooms are occupied he will spy on the five retired flying aces and uncover the identity of Pilot X. Now . . . you can't have a good movie without a pretty girl and a bit of romance, so we meet young Helen Gage, an orphan of the aircraft factory partner who is being raised by father Henry, and who is almost in love with Carl, the son of the aircraft factory owner. We also meet young flying ace Jerry Blackwood, played by John Carroll, who will help the scientist uncover the identity of Pilot X, and he will give Carl some competition for the affections of Helen. As the weekend begins, the five suspect pilots are killed, one by one, narrowing down the possibilities until . . . Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
