This British action melodrama had the novelty value of a real-life Flight Commander in the leading role. That worthy was Sir Alan Cobhan, who early in 1927 made headlines with his round-the-world flight. Though a fearless aviator, Cobhan was no actor, thus the dramatic weight of the film fell upon the shoulders of its supporting players Estelle Brody, John Stuart and Humberston Wright. The hokey plotline concerns a Native uprising in the Far East, fomented by a gang of communist agitators. When hero Stuart and heroine Wright find themselves surrounded by hostile tribesmen, it looks like curtains, but Sir Alan Cobhan swoops down in the nick of time to lob a few bombs and make the world safe for British Supremacy once more.
