Cassidy, Larry. Larry Cassidy was created by George Hively (Tempest Cody, Cyclone Smith) and Jacques Jaccard (Jack Holt (I), Cyclone Smith, Terror) and appeared in the film The Great Air Robbery (1919).

In the distant future of 1925 Larry Cassidy is a pilot for the United States Mail Service. The U.S.M.S. is plagued by the Death Head Aerial Squadron, a gang of air pirates who are led by Chester Van Arland. Van Arland blackmails Cassidy’s best friend, Wallie Mason, into showing Van Arland the route in which a large shipment of gold will be sent. Mason is killed in a crash, and Cassidy is forced to capture Van Arland and stop the mid-air hijacking himself.
