Al Wilson, the famous stunt flyer, plays a border patrol aviator who saves Mary (Gilmore) from some cattle rustlers. Excellent stunt work with motorcycle to car transfers, airplane to airplane transfers, wing walking, and even a fight on the wings of a plane make this more than of passing interest to film fans and airplane enthusiasts.
Al Wilson was a famous stunt flyer whose film career lasted from 1923 to 1932. Only two of his silent film works are known to have survived.
