This is a 29" x 43" Argentine one-sheet poster designed to promote the 1941 William Beaudine film Emergency Landing AKA Robot Pilot based on story and screenplay by Martin Mooney and starring Forrest Tucker as Jerry Barton. Plot summary: An inventor in Arizona named "Doc" Williams is trying with the help of his pilot friend Jerry Barton to market a wireless remote control device that can pilot an aircraft. They approach a millionaire named George Lambert [William Halligan], who has his own aircraft company. Lambert likes the idea but his daughter Betty [Carol Hughes] does not. A live test of the device is sabotaged by foreign agents causing the test aircraft to crash. One of the foreign agents later hijacks a Lambert aircraft with Betty and her Aunt Maude aboard. This time Doc and Jerry have perfected the remote control device, which they use to land the stolen aircraft and capture the foreign agent.
