KIRKUS REVIEW

The audience that got high on Gypsy Moths will really soar with Johnny Beugel, a pants pilot operating a charter service out of La Guardia and points east. Fortunately he's an ace pilot as he has to be after a mobster points a gun at his head, and, using his old girlfriend Neki as a hostage, forces him to take off blind in a superstorm for Canada. After they've landed on many a bump and a prayer, Johnny Finds himself up in the air again, covered with gasoline and with a dead man as co-pilot. Someone had set the plane on automatic and somehow the plane had missed the trees at the end of the field. Still surviving, Johnny arrives back home to discover that he's now the happy possessor of one million dollars in cold, old cash. And it all has to do with Neki who had once said ""I want. Everything."" Finally he and Neki are fighting a duel to the death. . . in places of course and even if you don't believe a word of it, it's some sky writing!
