IU Cinema presents: The Flying Ace 1926 Action/Adventure, Silent/Live Accompaniment 65 Mins.
In ‘Six Smashing Reels of Action,’ The Flying Ace tells the story of World War I flyer-hero Captain William Stokes who returns home to solve the mystery of a missing paymaster and save the life of the beautiful Ruth Sawtelle. Featuring an all-black cast, The Flying Ace is the only full-length film surviving from Richard Norman, a prominent director and distributor of silent race films in the 1920s. The film was restored in 2010 by the Library of Congress from an original nitrate negative donated by the director’s son, Captain Richard Norman, Jr. (35mm presentation)
Live piano accompaniment by Dr. Philip Carli.
