Versatile silent-film leading lady Eva Novak goes the "Pearl White" route in Dixie Flyer. She plays a plucky female racecar driver who falls in love with a handsome railroad worker. The hero risks life and limb for the sake of the heroine -- and vice versa. The most exciting scene finds Novak at the wheel of an out-of-control roadster as its speeds headlong towards an open bridge. The story, which was actually a series of all-but-unrelated incidents, was the handiwork of H. H. Van Loan, a specialist in sports and action yarns of all kinds.
