Trivia

In scene where the last time one sees the priest praying, near the last 10-15 minutes of the film, the man behind the priest, in the far back of the left of the cabin, appears to be wearing a dark colored German officer or NCO military cap and a field gray tunic with Wehrmacht lapel patches on it. He's kind of ducking down while the priest is in frame. In the next following scenes, he is wearing a normal 1950s business suit. This may have been some sort of prank played by the director or filmmaker just to see who would notice. See more »

Goofs

Although not stated in the film, the film-makers clearly intended to depict a Douglas DC-7C in the movie. In the exterior scenes, we see the "7 Seas" logo on the vertical fin, and in the close-up scenes of the engines, we see four-blade props and prop spinners as on a DC-7. However, with exception of the logo, the plane shown in the exterior scenes is a DC-4, evident by the more rounded shape of the vertical fin, the length of the aircraft, and no prop spinners.

Not bad, but not the best
12 August 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

You've got to love the old black and white DC-3 airplane disaster movies - well, I like them. This one is OK if a little pedestrian. What is odd is the abrupt ending - it looked like a reel was missing. It'll fill in a couple of hours, but you won't rush out to buy a copy.
