Fans of stunt pilot Al Wilson had no reason for complaint when their favorite flyboy brought forth his 1928 vehicle Won in the Clouds. There's a plot of sorts, as Wilson tries to save the heroine -- and his father's diamond mine -- from the clutches of the villains. Other than that, the film is virtually all action, with most of that action taking place thousands of feet above the clouds. The highlight is a brutal fistfight on the wing of Wilson's plane, with nary a stunt double or process screen to be found anywhere. Won in the Clouds was one of the few Al Wilson films to enjoy a "second life" on the 8-millimeter home-movie market of the 1960s and 1970s.
