Although very much a B picture, Monte Hellman's "Flight to Fury" is still worth seeing. It's best known as one of Jack Nicholson's early movies but it still has kind of an interesting plot. Nicholson plays one of a group of people after a fortune in the Philippine jungle. The beginning of the movie is a little slow but it picks up once they board the plane and the real action begins in the jungle.
Aside from Nicholson, the cast includes Dewey Martin and Fay Spain. Spain is best known as Hyman Roth's wife in "The Godfather Part 2" (so she starred in an obscure B movie from the '60s but also in a Best Picture winner). There's also Vic Díaz, whom Quentin Tarantino calls the Filipino Peter Lorre, and Joseph Estrada, who later became president of the Philippines.
It's definitely an interesting movie. Jack Nicholson showed a slight tinge of the sarcastic attitude that he brought to his more famous roles.
