The Midnight Flyer is a 1918 American short action drama film directed by George Marshall and starring Hoot Gibson.



Like many American films of the time, The Midnight Flyer was subject to cuts by city and state film censorship boards. For example, the Chicago Board of Censors required a cut, in Reel 2, of the note reading "Danny will be gone Tuesday", three scenes of young women at a bar, the intertitle "I've come to kill you", and the shooting scene.[1]
