The fast-paced FBO programmer Aflame in the Sky rather resembles a Tom Mix production -- with Jack Luden standing in for the flamboyant Mix. This modern-day western concerns a handsome hero, a lovely senorita, a stiff-necked military man, and an unspeakable villain. The hero's love of flying comes in handy when he takes to the air and skywrites a plea for HELP in the final reel. Luden's love interest in Aflame in the Sky is musical comedy star Sharon Lynn, best known as the scheming saloon-hall thrush in Laurel and Hardy's Way Out West (1937); the villain is old Douglas Fairbanks-cohort Robert McKim, here making his final appearance before his death of a cerebral hemorrhage at the age of 39, June 4, 1927.
