The Skywayman (1920)
Critic Reviews for The Skywayman
The photography is fine and the picture is worth seeing, if only for a farewell glance of a man who was brave and handsome and young and gay.
[Locklear's] work will not only go down in words, to be studied and copied, but actual photographs of his feats can at any time be reproduced. What is gone in the flesh will live on forevermore on the screen.
A feature wherein opportunities for spectacular thrills by trick aeroplane driving are capitally utilized, with a pleasant story trend in attractive surroundings makes this offering by Fox interesting in itself.
The best stunt is the one in which Locke's machine wrecks a church steeple and sends the villains scooting from this hiding place.
We think [Locklear's] stunts are going to be a trifle disappointing to the public, who, knowing of the star's death, are likely to expect something absolutely reckless and look for a new record in screen daredeviltry.
[Locklear] drops from an aeroplane to the top of a swiftly moving passenger train, then reverses the stunt, climbing back to the plane by means of a rope ladder. The feat is accomplished in a way that thrills the spectator to the core.
