Originally titled Emergency Landing, PRC's Robot Pilot affords an early leading-man opportunity to Forrest Tucker. He plays a test pilot, working on behalf of inventor Emmett Vogan. When Vogan's radio-controlled plane proves a failure, Tucker valiantly offers to keep trying. Carol Hughes and Evelyn Brent are the anxious ladies who await the results of Vogan's experiments, while villainy of a Germanic nature is provided by I. Stanford Jolley and Stanley Price. Also on hand is young Jack Lescoulie, light years away from his announcing chores on NBC's The Today Show.
