Trivia

Dorothy Malone did a cameo with Rod Taylor, during the pre-movie reviews, viewers wanted more of Dorothy, so they brought her back for another scene, but the credits had already been finished. See more »

Goofs

The aircraft used for this movie - cobbled together from a Douglas propeller airliner - would be impossibly tail heavy with tail-mounted engines. The wings are too far forward. If it managed to achieve flight, it would instantly stall and crash. See more »

Can you guess I liked this film?
28 August 2001 | by (Fife, Scotland) – See all my reviews

A complicated little film showing that the obvious isn't always the truth. A passenger aircraft crashes while being flown by the stereotypical risk-taking, flamboyant pilot, leaving only one survivor. With him dying in the crash, it doesn't take the vultures long before they are clamouring for an excuse to point the finger of blame his way. His long time friend and airline boss sets out to prove that it wasn't so, and through a fascinating series of flashbacks and vignettes, the not-so-obvious plot unwinds into a wonderful vindication of his dead friend. Absolutely astounding actors and a solid script make this a must see. It takes time and effort to watch the subtleties unwind but it makes it worth the effort.
