George Sidney and Charlie Murray, stars of Universal's popular "Cohens and Kellys" comedies, moonlight at First National in Flying Romeos. Sidney and Murray play Cohen and Cohan, two barbers who share a common interest in manicurist Minnie (Fritzi Ridgeway). To impress their mutual heartthrob, the middle-aged hairsnippers try to become aviators. Several hilarious (and vertigo-inducing) sequences follow, culminating in a Lindbergh-like flight to Europe. Director Mervyn LeRoy was some distance removed from films like Little Caesar, They Won't Forget and Quo Vadis when he called the shots in Flying Romeos.
