A long-lost silent melodrama, Fleetwing stars handsome Barry Norton as a young Arab whose happiness over having captured both a handsome stallion and a beautiful slave girl (Dorothy Janis proves short lived when both horse and girl are stolen by a cruel sheik (Robert Kortman). In an attempt to recover his property, our hero finds himself imprisoned by his enemy but is ultimately saved when the sheik's lair is attacked by an enemy tribe. Directed by Lambert Hillyer, Fleetwing was an obvious attempt by Fox to turn Argentine-born Norton into another Rudolph Valentino.
