Blaxploitation Pride – The Flying Ace (1926)
THE FLYING ACE (1926) is a gorgeous piece of Afro American film history. This film is the only surviving full length print by Norman Studios which is based out of Jacksonville, Florida. The action is great for a film produced so long ago. Enjoy <3 #BlackHistory365

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.
