First (and Only) Flight

Columbia Pictures’ 15-episode movie serial Bruce Gentry, Daredevil of the Skies debuted on February 10, 1949, starring Tom Neal as the aviator hero. Based on Ray Bailey’s Bruce Gentry comic strip, which ran from 1945 to 1951, the series features one of the earliest cinematic appearances of a flying saucer. Co-directors Spencer Gordon Bennett and Thomas Carr had previously worked on the 1947 Brick Bradford serial and the 1948 Superman and Congo Bill serials.
