Good, Intelligent 1960s Film
26 July 2005 | by See all my reviews

This is a fine film about an airliner crash and its later repercussions. Glenn Ford brings his usual earnestness to his role as an airline executive determined to discover the cause of the crash, which killed its pilot and his good friend (Rod Taylor). Reports that Taylor had been drinking only make Ford more determined to get to the bottom of the mystery. Top cast works well with an intelligent script, which unfortunately gets a little slow and talky near the middle of the movie. The flashback scenes with Ford, Taylor, Jane Russell and Wally Cox are extremely well done, and Dorothy Malone gives a fine, uncredited performance. Perfect TV fare, good for folks who like movies from the mid-1960s era.

PS--Isn't that Joe Patridge as the First Officer at the beginning of the movie?
