Hell's Angels 1930 Re-Release Trailer

Here's a trailer for the Howard Hughes film "Hell's Angels". This one dates from the re-release of the film, possibly in the 1970s? The fun thing about this trailer is that it contains some rare newsreel footage from opening night at the Chinese Theater in Hollywood. What a event, with neon biplanes lining the street, and searchlights piercing the night sky. This film and others shown here were collected for the production of the documentary film "The Legend of Pancho Barnes and the Happy Bottom Riding Club", about aviation pioneer Florence "Pancho" Barnes.

Great find. Of course I REALLY want to see the Pancho docu! I know her from Yeager's and Bob Hoover's anecdotes, but would love the whole story.

Great movie!!! Air combat footage only rivaled by "The Battle of Britain" in 1969, also highly recommended.
