Quotes

Glenn Wallup: I don't remember you being elected king of this island.
Steve Bannerman: There's no election necessary, Mr Walkup. As senior officer of that aircraft I'm responsible for the safety and well-being of every person on this island. In plain English - I am in charge here. That's not my idea, that's maritime law. Now maybe you don't like it, maybe I don't - that's the way it's going to have to be. Now is that absolutely clear?

Well, it landed In Oz
3 February 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Released in cinemas in Australia in 1970 this flying low drama is quite a good film. A strong cast of Universal stalwarts: Bridges, Meeker, Francis, Prine and even Billy Dee Williams see LOST FLIGHT offer solid performances with believable interaction. No dumb kids or even whining teens in this one, LOST FLIGHT was made for adults. Preceeding AIRPORT, this small but rewarding plane crash disaster pic may have been a trial run for the Arthur Hailey film. I saw it in a huge screen in a big 2500 seat cinema as a double feature (one week only!) and was well reviewed at the time. The plane crash sequence is particularly effective. 2005 TV has now seen a mini series called LOST about - exactly the same thing. Sort of a Lord Of The Flies entry into the desert island plane crash theme of stories LOST FLIGHT is very entertaining and recommended (if it ever turns up again, anywhere). This type of 60s Universal film was very well made and I would suggest today looks even more acceptable and interesting given the low quality of 2005 TV dramas and the silly violence and squabbling therein. DUEL and KILL CHARLEY VARRICK may have been other similar level films off the same production line that made it into cinemas overseas. Anyway with LOST on TV, LOST FLIGHT deserves another look. It's actually shorter and more interesting.
