An aviator (Phillip Parmalee) helps a woman (Mabel Normand) rescue her suitor (Fred Mace) from an angry mob.

A Dash Through the Clouds is a 1912 short American silent comedy film directed by Mack Sennett, written by Dell Henderson and starring Mabel Normand. It has the distinction of being somewhat of an aviation film as Sennett employed the services of real life aviation pioneer, Philip Parmalee, a pilot for the Wright Brothers. Parmalee is preserved on film here as he was killed in a crash not long after making this film.

Sennett had a penchant for working with and showcasing real-life daredevils and public personalities and hired a real-life pilot, Phil Parmalee, who was a national hero at the time. He would employ Barney Oldfield in a similar fashion a year later in Barney Oldfields Race for a Life.

Aviation enthusiast Josephine rescues her suitor, Chubby, from an angry mob with the help of Slim and his airplane.
