SKU ID #318372
Come fly the not-so-friendly skies with mechanic-turned-aviator Tailspin Tommy, a.k.a. Tommy Hopkins, the comic strip-hero brought to life on film by Maurice Murphy in "Tailspin Tommy" (1934). After nabbing a lucrative mail delivery contract for Three Points Airlines, the courageous young pilot is targeted by a rival company. Though Tiger Airlines tries to sabotage him at every turn, Tommy's aerial prowess and heroism in the face of danger - including runaway planes and oncoming trains - win out every time. The film was adapted from the popular 1930s cartoon strip by Hal Forrest.
