The Flying Ace (1926)





























Starring:
Storyline
A veteran World War I fighter pilot returns home a war hero and immediately regains his former job as a railroad company detective. His first case: recover a stolen satchel filled with $25,000 of company payroll, locate a missing employee, and capture a gang of railroad thieves. The film was divided into four chapters, so that exhibitors could show the film as a feature or as a four-episode serial.

This film was restored by Kino Lorber which was archived in the Library of Congress and released in a 5 disc box set: Pioneers of African American Cinema.
