Description by OLDIES.com:

Crack pilot Dan Kendall arrives in tropical Mosaque which he finds under the iron grip of dictator Colonel Golas. He ends up in deep trouble with the Colonel when he romances beautiful Johanna Van Deuren, who is betrothed to the despot. Golas responds by sending him on a dangerous mission during which he intends to ambush Kendall from behind and rid himself of his rival once and for all.

Forced Landing boasts a strong cast headed by Richard Arlen and gorgeous 22 year-old Eva Gabor in her first film, with strong support from J. Carrol Naish and Evelyn Brent. Handsome Danish actor Nils Asther played leading man to Greta Garbo, Pola Negri, and Joan Crawford, but is probably best-remembered for his role in The Bitter Tea Of General Yen (1933).

Forced Landing's star, Richard Arlen, was a real-life pilot serving as a flight instructor in World War II. Arlen is best known for his role in the 1927 Academy Award winner, Wings, but also appeared in Hollywood classics including The Four Feathers (1929) and Island Of Lost Souls (1933). He was honored for his five-decade career with a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame.
