Two young men, one rich, one middle class, who are in love with the same woman, become fighter pilots in World War I. Daring danger and destruction. Scouring the skies for enemy planes. Soaring to the clouds in a flimsy machine. And yet, like a charm, her love kept this "Shooting Star." Carried him through the terrific dangers. Brought him back to earth. Spirited, striving, spectacular. A story of the American war "Aces" in France.
Film will be shown at the beautifully restored Loews Landmark Theatre and will be accompanied by a Bernie Anderson live at the organ.
