Trivia

This Canadian Broadcasting Company drama went out live on April 3, 1956 to instant acclaim. A kine-scope was rebroadcast in August 1956 due to viewer demand to see it again. Hollywood took notice and the same script was used for an episode of the NBC series "The Aloca Hour" in September 1956. This version was so well received by the viewing audience and critics alike that Paramount released a feature film version in 1957 and later a CBS made-for-TV version called "Terror in the Sky," before the story was spoofed in "Airplane!"

As far as I can tell, unless you were watching this one when it came out in 1956, there is no other way it could have been viewed. The reviews here seem to indicate that at least 2 of the 3 reviewers, if not all three, have never even seen this particular movie but have seen the other remakes.

So if anyone out there can provide any information for viewing Flight Into Danger from 1956, I would love to view it and review it in any digital form. I would also accept the Alcoa Hour episode of Flight Into Danger made in the same year with a different cast which also appears to be unfindable. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0507662/
