Trivia

(At around 30 mins) There is a reference to pounds and guineas. It may be helpful to all that "five guineas" meant, in 1937, five pounds plus five shillings (each guinea being a pound plus one shilling). Thus, the negotiations in that scene in the film were concluded with: "Five pounds" and "five bob for the missus." (A "bob" was the nickname for a shilling) A witty comment it was, in context, notwithstanding that the concept of "the missus" is rather outdated nowadays! Pre-decimal currency remains complicated, even in the UK, in retrospect. See more »

Decent--and I really liked the rather insane finale.
2 August 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Non-Stop New York" is a British film that has lapsed into the public domain. However, despite this, it is well made and quite enjoyable. However, I strongly hesitate calling it 'Hitchcockian' like some of the other reviewers.

The film begins with a hungry and out of work actress (Anna Lee) being in the wrong place at the wrong time. A man is murdered and she's lucky she wasn't killed. And, she's completely unaware of the killing! Because she then is out of circulation for some time, she is unaware that a man was convicted of the murder--and she can exonerate him because she knows he wasn't involved. But the gang behind the killing isn't about to let her go to the police about it and they throw impediments in her way. So, she takes off from England--a stowaway on a clipper plane bound for New York where the man is waiting on death row. She intends to tell the authorities in the States what she knows--the gang plans on murdering her aboard this plane.

This film has a few plot holes and bad performances here and there. But, it IS entertaining. I particularly liked the ending--improbable but exciting to watch. Overall, this is a better than average British film and one that will keep you on the edge of your seat at times.
