It's not for nothing than action star Charles Hutchison was known as "Hurricane Hutch." In Pirates of the Sky, Hutchison plays daredevil pilot Bob Manning, who is pressed into service by the Government to track down a missing mail plane. He soon uncovers a gang of aerial hijackers, led by Bruce Mitchell (Crauford Kent). Exhibiting a repertoire of truly awe-inspiring flying stunts, Manning beats the villains at their own game. Wanda Hawley, a former Cecil B. DeMille leading lady who spent the twilight of her career in inexpensive programmers of this nature, is the fetching heroine, while comic relief is supplied by British music-hall veteran Jimmy Aubrey.
