Thunder the Dog, one of the worthier rivals of canine star Rin Tin Tin, heads the cast of Wings of the Storm. Curiously, the plot is quite "human," with a cowardly, pampered German Shepherd becoming a hero when he's adopted by a rugged forest ranger (Reed Howes). The daring doggie not only rescues his former owner (Virginia Brown Faire) from an untimely death but also exposes the treachery of a villainous lumber-camp superintendent (Bill Martin). The climactic sequence, in which the bad guy unloads a supply of logs on the helpless hero and heroine, is the equal of anything ever seen in a Rin Tin Tin opus. Wings of the Storm was directed by John G. Blystone, whose gallery of cinematic collaborators ranged from Tom Mix to Laurel and Hardy.
