| Typical Example of the Comic-Strip-Inspired Series
In the third of four Tailspin Tommy movies, John Trent deals with Jackie Coogan, who's washing out of the Patrol through lack of nerve, despite his father, Boyd Irwin, being the commandant. Trent is anxious to help the son of his old instructor, but a ring of aerial smugglers is at work. Workhorse director Howard Bretherton does his usual competent job.

Trent was a pilot for TWA who was noticed and signed for Paramount. He was good looking, but seems to have gotten no acting lessons, so eventually he went back to flying for a living. He died in 1966, aged 59.
