James Cruze was the producer-director of The Night Flyer, while Cecil B. DeMille served in an executive-producer capacity. DeMille contractee William Boyd stars as Jimmy Bradley, a two-fisted locomotive fireman. Jimmy is engaged to Kate Murphy (Jobyna Ralston), but she breaks it off when our hero gets plastered at his bachelor party. Kate gravitates to Bat Mullins (Philo McCullough), a mail train engineer and Jimmy's longtime rival. When Mullins' engine suffers a breakdown, Jimmy forgets his differences with the man and gets the mail through. In so doing, he lands an important government contract and simultaneously redeems himself in Kate's eyes.
