Note: Above is a promotional trailer for the film. The film inspired by real life aviator Bessie Coleman.
There is a discrepancy with one of the names. On the film it lists the character of Constable Jed Splivins as being Lyons Daniels, but on the promotional material for the movie, his name is listed as Lions Daniels. Still looking for images of Sam Jordan and R.L. Brown. Also, haven’t found an official release date. Might have to look through old newspapers.
