Released in 1926, starring Lawrence Criner and Kathryn Boyd, two established Black actors, this film was a major hit for Norman Studios. Criner played a World War I fighter pilot who returns home a hero. Peg Reynolds was Criner's side kick and together they rescue Boyd and her father from railroad thieves.

Even so, the film was a sensation and grossed close to $20,000 through Norman's distribution efforts
