Jim Blaine dares death every day as a barnstorming aviation pioneer. But when it comes to marrying the beautiful parachute jumper hes gone loop-de-loop for well, thats scary. As Jim, Richard Barthelmess dons goggles and leather cap for adventure in the wild blue yonder under the brawny direction of a real aviation pioneer: World War I pilot William A. Wellman, whose Wings (1927) sent box office receipts into the stratosphere and won the first Best Picture Academy Award. In Central Airport, Wellman displays his genius for creating action aloft with hold-your-breath aerial stunts and expert miniature work. Dont let the thrills distract you during the climax or youll miss John Wayne as the heroic co-pilot of a downed plane.blue"& **Please be aware that this is a manufactured on demand disc that was created using a DVD-R disc.
