Storyline

FBI man Stafford is extraditing convicted killer Brett Murphy from Spain to the USA. At the last minute, Murphy's fiancée, entertainer Jean Gurney, finds he's been taken and slips on the plane. Unknown to them, a suicidal passenger has a fire and gas bomb in his luggage. As time ticks away, minor dramas are played out on board. Then the pilots succumb to the fumes, and the only available substitute is Murphy. Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

Almost a waste of time.
20 April 2010 | by (Adelaide Australia) – See all my reviews

Barely worth a rating, due to a dreadful script, and some of the worst acting even allowing for the fact that it was made in the late Fifties. I came across this movie on TCM, and when I saw the names of George Raft and Ilona Massey, I knew it was probably going to be a disaster, but pressed on regardless. Although clearly designed as a B film, the plot was not all that bad, and a last chance opportunity for some oldies like Margaret Lindsay and George MacReady to get some work, but the Director blew it very badly. Raft was wooden as usual, Massey was quite pathetic, Virginia Mayo looked like she was regretting not being back at warner Brothers and Guy Madison was lost without his horse. I gave it a 2 mainly for the chance to see some old stars!
