Full movie description "Flying Luck":Monty Banks wants to be like his hero Charles Lindbergh, and will do anything to learn to fly a plane. After building his own doesn't go so well, he winds up enlisting in the Army. During basic training, Monty falls in love with the Colonel's daughter (played by a young Jean Arthur), tangles with a mean drill sergeant (Kewpie Morgan) and is mistaken for a visiting French dignitary. But eventually Monty winds up in a plane and wins the big Army-Navy air polo match! On May 20, 1927 Charles Lindbergh successfully performed the first transatlantic solo flight, captivating the nation, if not the world. Two months later, motion picture trade papers announced that comedian Monty Banks' next feature-length comedy would be An Ace in the Hole -- which was released on December 5, 1927 as Flying Luck. This aviation-inspired comedy was the last produced of a string of Monty Banks features made 1924-27. Monty Banks entered films in 1916 and, after supporting other comedians for a few ...
Reviews of the Flying LuckMonty Banks is a budding aviator who is talked into joining the army by a recruiter who tells him he will have a new plane every day and lunch with the Colonel. The result is a very watchable short feature, half service comedy and half thrill comedy.
Monty Banks was a very inventive screen comic of the 1920s who made the transition from shorts to features. Unfortunately, while those features were very good, they were not successful financially and he wound up behind the camera, directing some excellent comedy features in Great Britain during the sound era.
Why did Banks' starring features fail? My theory is that the years they were released, 1926 and 1927, had a lot of great comedy features, and Banks, while capable in all departments, didn't match anyone's idea of a leading man, even a comic one. Basically the competition swamped him.
It's a pity, because Monty was capable of both great pratfalls and of realistic but comic expressions. He is also aided in this effort by a startlingly young Jean Arthur as the ingénue and Kewpie Morgan in a bit of real acting as a sergeant. Usually Morgan's acting consisted almost entirely as displaying how fat he was. Here he gets to show up as a capable actor.
This movie has been recently released on DVD by Bruce Lawton and Ben Model with one of Ben's typically excellent scores. You won't find a copy of this movie a waste of time or money.
