Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Unrelated to the same-named 1939 Sonja Henie vehicle, the 1934 Monogram release Happy Landing is an airborne cops-and-robbers affair. Ray Walker stars as brash U.S. border patrolman Nick Terris, on the trail of a gang of international crooks. Anticipating such later films as Assault on a Queen, the villains intend to rob an ocean liner. To keep the authorities at bay, the thieves threaten to drop a bomb on the ship from a stolen seaplane. Hero Terris is thus required to take to the air himself to foil the bad guys. Some nice aerial photography (credited to Archie J. Stout) is the principal redeeming factor of this standard effort.
