Richard Attenborough plays Ernest Tilley, a man who lost his daughter in a hit-and-run accident. He tracks down the man responsible for the accident and boards the same plane, threatening to blow up himself and everyone on board as an act of vengeance. What follows is an Airport-type movie with all the passengers having their own little subplots and fears.
Why Do You Want To Kill Me? The crisis of fear is faced by THIS BOY and his fellow passengers...Panicked by a demented man's desire for revenge!
20 November 1959 (Ireland)

On the aircraft the passengers go down a staircase to the 'lounge', where there is a row of windows the same as on the upper level. However, on the exterior shots of the plane there is quite obviously only one row of windows - so there is no lower level accessible to the passengers. See more
