| A Fair Flight for Joe E. Brown
Claremont, Wisconsin newspaperman and aviator Joe E. Brown (as Elmer Lane) wins the $5,000 first prize in a radio contest and is subsequently taken advantage of by sneaky Guy Kibbee (as J. Rutherford "Doc" Waddington). Then, the "Radio Beam Airplane Co." they form with the funds attracts a criminal element. Pretty girlfriend Florence Rice (as Betty Harrison) worries Mr. Brown may be in over his head. Taking his bath in this one, the popular comedian would have benefited from a wiser budget and some fresher material.

**** Riding on Air (6/18/37) Edward Sedgwick ~ Joe E. Brown, Guy Kibbee, Florence Rice, Vinton Hayworth
