"North By Northwest" Plane Scene Done First in 1932 John Wayne Serial "Shadow Of The Eagle" (video)

Alfred Hitchcock's famous biplane attack scene in "North By Northwest" (1959) has a much earlier antecedent... the 1932 John Wayne serial "Shadow of the Eagle."

Two years later, "The Beast of Yucca Flats" would continue the trend.

I neither own nor claim any rights to this material.  Just having some fun with it.  Thanks for watching!
