A very dull affair
2 August 2002 | by (Dublin.) – See all my reviews

A cast of familiar faces include Robert Reed,Susan Oliver,Vera Miles and Connie Selleca who was,at the time married to the star of the film Gil Gerard.The plane gets off the ground but the tension never does. The script was awful.At one point Vera Miles charactor's age is given as 40.......She was 57 when the film was made and looked it!.And how many times have we seen George Kennedy and Robert Vauyn in this setting?.Too many times.....
