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for a shilling) A witty comment it was, in context, notwithstanding that the concept of "the missus" is rather outdated nowadays!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

Surprisingly fun!
18 June 2001 | by (Minneapolis) – See all my reviews

I bought the video of Non-Stop New York on a whim when I saw it was about a double-decker airplane with an outside deck(!). However, the plane only comes into play during the last half of the film, and when it does, the design of it is so downplayed that we assume double-decker planes were mainstream travel in 1938. The plot involves a chorus girl trying to free an innocent man from death row while being pursued by the gangsters that did it. Yeah, we've all seen it before, but the plane, and the way the movie uses it, truly make this trip worth it.

In my opinion, if you stumbled across a film as esoteric as this in the IMDb and actually are taking the time to read about it, you'll enjoy it. This is what all those Airport movies wish they were.
