And also mechanical sleeper

I nearly fell asleep whilst I watched this episode. Who cares about such a stupid story? Stupid, talkative and without any excitement too. William Bendix is all right, nothing to argue about him, only the topic is corny. But maybe some kind of audiences may appreciate this flat, tepid stuff. Christian Nyby, the director, will probably not be remembered for this junk piece of work. If you have something else important, or not, to do, don't hesitate a second and proceed. OK, you can save the air flight sequences with the cook on the spot, but that's all. Poor Audrey Totter who seems lost in that flight to nowhere except a better cook for Bill Bendix.
