No relation to the 1929 American actioner of the same name, the British Flying Fool features Henry Kendall as airborne amateur sleuth Vincent Floyd. When an undercover Pinkerton man is offed by a gang of homicidal jewel thieves, Floyd swings into action. A bit quicker on the uptake than most quota quickies, the film is distinguished by the climactic chase, in which Kendall commanders a transport plane then pursues the villains' car through a dangerous mountain pass. Distinguished British leading ladies Benita Hume and Ursula Jeans are cast respectively as the "mystery woman" heroine and a sultry female thief.
