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nickname for a shilling) A witty comment it was, in context, notwithstanding that the concept of "the missus" is rather outdated nowadays!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 »

A wild ride on a plane…and what a plane!
8 February 2012 | by (Minnesota) – See all my reviews

English and American characters and accents mingle in this lively thriller about a murder witness on the run.…from and then back to New York.

Anna Lee is our heroine, a young English chorus girl; hungry and out of luck in New York and about to board ship for home, she is befriended by a young lawyer who invites her over for a meal. Once inside his apartment, however, the man is promptly murdered by a gang of thugs headed by big smoothy Francis L. Sullivan. Noting that Lee is "the only person alive who knows that we were in that apartment last night"—at least that's what he thinks at the time—Sullivan subtly trails her.

The action moves to London, where the gang attempts to prevent Lee from returning to New York, where the imminent execution of an innocent fall guy will close the case. Will Lee's character realize the situation? And will she be able to reach America in time to save the innocent man's life? –This is where the story takes off: when all of the major characters board a trans-Atlantic airplane that is easily the most memorable element of this movie.

The plane is like no other: ordinary airliner on the outside, on the inside it's more like an ocean liner—complete with staterooms instead of rows of seats. It's even got a sort of porch—an observation deck—for characters who care to step outside, mid-Atlantic Ocean, and get a breath of wind in the face.

Among the cast, Anna Lee is quite dashing as the girl with a brain and some courage. John Loder is fine as a handsome young police inspector who is drawn into the case and onto the plane; Loder and Lee don't have a whole lot of scenes together but share a cute scene on the observation deck.

Francis L. Sullivan is excellent as the boss gangster. With the looks of Sidney Greenstreet and a voice like George Sanders, he is indeed a memorable villain. Young Desmond Tester is also a lot of fun to watch—a violin prodigy traveling with a grumpy aunt, the kid is prone to snooping and illicit saxophone playing.

A nice variety of characters, a decent plot, and that fantastic airliner make this one a winner.
