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.
