Review by

A train heading for certain doom in a deep ravine was old hat even in 1933. In fact, the situation was as old as those proverbial hills when Helen Holmes made railroad melodramas her specialty back during World War I. Nevertheless, here is pretty little Evalyn Knapp headed for that very same ravine on that very same steam engine. The situation called for a bit of burlesque, one would think, but except for Thelma Todd, whose femme fatale is hilariously overdone, everyone plays it straight. Miss Knapp, meanwhile, went on to star in a remake of The Perils of Pauline and if nothing else, Air Hostess should have provided her plenty of practice.
