Storyline

At a fashionable dinner party in Hong Kong a naval officer is coaxed into revealing details of a dream in which eight persons take off from Bangkok in a Dakota bound for Tokyo and crash in the Japanese mountains. Amongst those listening is Air Marshal Hardie who is due to fly to Tokyo the next day. Hardie initially dismisses the dream because he is scheduled to fly out in a Liberator, but as Hardie arrives at the airport he discovers that the Liberator has developed mechanical problems and has been replaced by a Dakota. When, just before the flight is due to depart, two soldiers board the plane making a complement of eight, Hardie fears that the Dream may be coming true and he is destined to die.

Great storyline and always had suspense.
14 January 2002 | by (Gold Coast, Australia) – See all my reviews

I saw the movie for the first time only two days ago (12/01/2002) and really liked it. For a black & white movie, it had a good story line, suspense and a good selection of characters. It was typically British as in The Dam Busters and Reach For The Sky, bt then again, somethings the British do better than America. Its a movie I could watch again. It also shows a young Denholm Elliott, still highly recognizable as the same person who starred in the Indiana Jones Movies.

Very enjoyable and highly recommended.
