Synopsis by Hal Erickson

The title of this WWI drama translates as Under the Leather Helmet. Set in Rumania, the film focuses on a female secret agent who intends to use an airplane to fly behind enemy lines. While she awaits her flight to destiny, the girl spends several days with a French flying squadron. Her sexy presence causes the pilots to begin fighting among themselves, resulting in disaster for all concerned. A brief musical interlude features the American dancing duo Stone & Vernon, whose presence makes about as much sense as the rest of the film. Sour le Casque de Cuir is a variation on a theme that has been replayed many times in such films as Station Six Sahara and Once Before I Die.
