Crack-Up (TCF 1936, Peter Lorre, Brian Donlevy)



In Crack-Up expert test pilot Ace Martin is hounded by a mysterious spy ring seeking secret plans to an experimental plane.

Eluding them, Martin escapes with the plans in another experimental plane alongside the plane’s designer, Fleming, copilot, Randall, and Gimpy, the airplane’s eccentric mascot. When the plane crash-lands in the ocean, however, Gimpy reveals himself to be the spy-ring’s leader and demands that Martin hand over the plans. Neat spy yarn.
