Synopsis

The Hurricane Express: The Wrecker
In the first episode of the twelve-chapter serial The Hurricane Express, a mysterious figure known as "The Wrecker" is systematically sabotaging the L&R railroad, crashing trains, stealing shipments, and killing personnel. One of "The Wrecker"'s victims is engineer Jim Baker (J. Farrell McDonald, the father of young aviator Larry Baker (John Wayne). Determined to avenge his father's death, Larry makes it his mission to expose "The Wrecker"'s true identity. Meanwhile, railroad president Howard Edwards (Tully Marshall), whose secretary Gloria (Shirley Grey) is sweet on Larry, is convinced that Larry's boss, Air Transport Company owner Walter Gray (Lloyd Whitlock), is in the fact "The Wrecker", determined to put the L&R out of business. Other prime suspects include Gloria's own father Frank (Edmund Breese), an escaped convict out to prove he is innocent of the crimes charged against him by Howard Edwards; Tom Jordan (Matthew Betz), disgruntled ex-employee of the L&R; and even Edwards' trusted associate, railroad attorney Stevens (Conway Tearle). ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
