"Tailspin" Tommy Thompkins narrowly survives a crash while filming a World War I epic. The angry stunt pilot quits the production when he learns that Director Pat Sheehan had him deliberately shot down in order to capture an exciting shot. A week later, he discovers that his pal Skeeter has accepted $500 to fly an extremely dangerous stunt for Sheehan. Fearing for his pal's life, Tommy knocks Skeeter out, and takes his place at the shoot. But the stunt takes a tragic turn, and Tommy finds himself in jail facing a murder charge.
The second of four Monogram films based on Hal Forrest's popular comic strip, "Tailspin Tommy," Stunt Pilot was a showcase for some talented people who went on to greater acclaim. Director George Waggner directed The Wolf Man (1941) and Marjorie Reynolds appeared opposite Boris Karloff in Monogram's Mr. Wong series and starred in Holiday Inn and Fritz Lang's Ministry of Fear.
Tailspin Tommy, the high-flying ace from the comic strip, goes Hollywood, performing thrills and spills for movie cameras.
