Format: DVD
Ah, the joys of Frankie Darro and Mantan Moreland. Darro was among Monogram Pictures' biggest drawing cards in 1940, before The East Side Kids became the studio's resident little tough guys. Frankie Darro often played jockeys and villains in major-studio movies, but his Monograms gave him more opportunities for his acting skills and comic flair (Monogram held on to him, in one capacity or another, for another 10 years).
"Up in the Air" is one of Darro's better outings and a typical Monogram feature, with presentable but not lavish production values, and a serviceable supporting cast dotted with some familiar faces. When a difficult diva dies mysteriously, radio-station pageboy Frankie and his pal Mantan keep one step ahead of the cops and try to identify the killer. The mystery is interesting enough, but there is a good deal of comedy and music to help the proceedings along. Marjorie Reynolds sings, the pop-eyed Moreland clowns and dances, and when Moreland goes into his famous "incomplete-sentence" comedy routine, his partner is none other than Frankie Darro in blackface, doing an extremely good imitation of Freeman Gosden (of "Amos 'n' Andy")! Serial fans will enjoy seeing Tristram Coffin and Lorna Gray (a/k/a Adrian Booth) in supporting roles.
Picture and sound are very good, from a fine 16mm print. This is a good one from Alpha's budget-price video line (the graphics on the packaging are superb), and B-movie fans and late-late-show viewers with long memories should enjoy this.

Up in the Air, a quickie 1940 B movie cranked out on a tight budget and on an even tighter shooting schedule, is worth viewing at least once. It's representative of all those cheap bread-and-butter movies the studios churned out designed to fill the lower bill of America's movie houses. If you don't have some familiarity with these films you just won't understand what a lot of Hollywood was about before and, to a degree, right after WWII. For every Clark Gable, Rita Hayworth and John Ford, there were thousands of journeymen, men and women, directing, writing, acting in and making possible all these movies. The movie, only 61 minutes long, is a comedy murder mystery which was a popular staple back then. This time the formula also calls for songs. There are three original ones and, like the movie, they're not bad. It stars a long forgotten actor named Frankie Darrow, who was big stuff in the B movie business back in the mid-Thirties through the mid-Forties. Darrow was a small, lean guy who got his start as a child actor. His big years were spent playing jockeys and high school students. At 5' 3" and when tastes changed right after WWII, Darrow was quickly left behind after he returned from the Navy. By 1950, when he was 33, he was only getting bit parts. He and a partner finally bought a bar in Hollywood, a bad move. Darrow became a serious alcoholic, but at least a relatively good-natured one. Except for occasional movie and television bits, he was washed up. If you admire Robby the Robot in Forbidden Planet, Darrow was one of two men hired to take turns being inside Robby to make him move. That's show biz, kids.

One other interesting thing to note.

Marjorie Reynolds of this movie is wonderful. I like singing scenes. But I am disappointed because a picture is not clear. I want you to release DVD by high-resolution digital remastering.
