On a flight from Chicago to Los Angeles via Iowa, lawyer David Trask gets to know three of his fellow passengers as one technical issue after another leads to delays and unscheduled stops along the way. Those three are physician Dr. Robert Fortness, struggling actress with the stage name Binky Gay, and loud salesman Eddie Hoke, who is both quick with a joke and quick to show off a photograph of his beautiful wife, Marie Hoke. Below the surface, the three have deeper stories, which are bringing them back to Los Angeles and which Dr. Fortness and Binky divulge to David. Dr. Fortness, an alcoholic, is returning to own up to his drunken part in the death of a friend, and his wife Claire's complicity in the matter.

Outstanding Cast 3 Great Stories for the Price of One
What a Great Film with an outstanding cast, Bette Davis and Husband G. Merrill shine in this drama. Merrill visits three families with a message from the dead. Each story has its own lesson and yet all are about love. The story about Davis and her husband in the film tells what love really means not what today's X-rated world thinks it is. This film should be shown more often. Come on AMC
