At the Tangier airport, a group of people await the arrival of a mysterious plane from behind the Iron Curtain. The reception committee includes Susan, an American; Gil Walker, a free-booting pilot; Danzer, a black market operator; and Danzer's girlfriend, Nicki. The plane crashes and burns. No survivors are found, nor are any corpses. Soon the search begins for a missing courier worth $3 million. Written by

By report, the second of only two 3-D films shot in 3-strip Technicolor (and thus requiring six strips of film); the first was Money From Home (1953). See more »
When Gil, Susan, and Nikki are asleep in the grove, a small plane searching for them wakens them. The branches Gil had previously placed on the car to camouflage it disappear then reappear when the camera changes from the plane to the car. See more »
Who are Danzer and Goro, anyway?
Haven't you heard? They're the kind of people who can start a war, if the price is right.

Flight To Tangier appears in No Country For Old Men.
This was the movie Carla Jean was watching in " No Country For Old Men" when Lewellyn returned with the drug money.
Why did the Coen Brothers select this film? They certainly had seen this film and selected it for some oblique artistic reason or simply because they liked the movie. I've never seen this film. Is there some aspect of Flight To Tangier" that links it to "No Country For Old Men?"
Would anyone disagree that the Coen Brothers are way too sophisticated and detailed oriented to simply throw any movie on a television one of their characters was viewing?
