"Hell's Angels" Wins
Praise of War Experts
Hell's Angels," according to world
war authorities, is undeniably the
most authentic and realistic air
spectacle which has been produced
Major C. C. Moseley, formerly of
the First Pursuit Group, A. E. F.,
now vice-president of the Curtis
Flying Sendee, is one of the many
ex-war-aces who has voluntarily
gone on record in high praise of the
authenticity of the Howard Hughes
aviation fiim, at the Star theatre
Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.
" 'Hell's Angels' actually shows
things as they were at the front
durnig the war," declared Major
Moseley. "It puts on the screen
the things which the gang who flew
at the front has been trying to ex
plain for twelve years. What's
more, it gives a few jolts that can't
possibly be set down by word of
mouth or in writing.
"Real, honest - to - gosh German
Fokker D-7's, British SE-5's, and

sort of thing just can't be done by
drug store pilots.
