This low-budget precursor to Howard Hawks' Only Angels Have Wings stars Jack Holt as Bob Kent, the head of a charter-airplane service in South America. When not risking his life flying mail and supplies through the treacherous Andes, Kent must contend with the earthbound hostilities between his Bolivian and Paraguayan employees. He also gets into hot water by attempting to romance Theresa (Mona Barrie), never suspecting that she's the wife of Bolivian major Tovar (Antonio Moreno). The conclusion finds Kent taking to the air in mortal combat against a renegade pilot. For a man who was reportedly deathly afraid of flying, Jack Holt certainly made more than his share of aviation pictures.
