Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 70 ratings.
A gang of crooks use a ray that conks out plane engines so that they can steal the US Mail (Wouldn't it have been easier to conk out truck engines instead??) Nevertheless, a classic "B" movie, and an absolutely unintentionally hilarious musical number stuck in the middle of the film for no apparent reason! I loved Brix's disguise, which was to take off his leather flying jacket and put on a regular one??!! Hattie McDaniels does a good job here as (of course) the maid, and the whole cast holds their own. Great fun, and well worth the $5.00
The visual quality and sound is the best. Hard to believe that "Sky Racket" was made between 1936 and 1937. It is a real treat to see Hattie McDaniels in a movie such as this, even if all she has is a small role in the film. This is one of those fastastic finds at the Oldies site.
