The Adventures of Smilin' Jack

Show Summary

The Adventures of Smilin' Jack is a 1943 film series from Universal Studios starring Tom Brown, Rose Hobart, Edgar Barrier, and Marjorie Lord in a story about an American aviator from the World War II era who must join forces with the Chinese government to defeat a joint Japanese and German covert attack. The Adventures of Smilin' Jack was originally a popular and successful comic strip featuring colorful characters and pro-United States story lines that ran in newspapers from 1933 to 1973. The character of Smilin' Jack-a clever, honorable, all-American fighter pilot-became so popular that the series spawned a radio spin-off as well as this thirteen-chapter serialized film. The characters in the film depart somewhat from the characters of the comic strip, but the story maintains the same patriotic and adventurous spirit that made the comic so popular in post-war America. The Adventures of Smilin' Jack is a fun, classic film series that recalls an important period in America's history, from directors Lewis D. Collins and Ray Taylor.
