"Mail Pilot" (1933) - Pencil of Hanger (2 of 20)

As a pilot, I tended to pick up items with an aerospace theme. The 1933 film "Mail Pilot" caught my attention and I ended picking up a number of items from the film. I thought I share the group with you.

The "goofoid" figures were an interesting introduction in these early films. Both pigs and goofoid characters showed up as background characters.

I liked this image for its rendering of movement as the mail bags were removed from the airplane.
