On a commercial flight to Montenegro, an F.B.I. man, James Vine, notices a fellow passenger, an attractive 25-year old woman named Sandra Perkins. But he also notices subtle attempts from the part of the flight attendant to slip a poison pill into the passenger's drink. James Vine spills her drink and saves her life. However, the G-man finds it strange that all members of the flight crew leave the cockpit and head to the rear section of the plane. Minutes later, 4 parachutes are seen opening outside the aircraft. James realizes the crew bailed-out of the plane, leaving the aircraft on auto-pilot. James rushes to the cockpit to find it empty. He explains to Sandra that an attempt is being made on her life and that he will try to fly the aircraft himself, recalling his wartime pilot training.

What a pity!
4 July 2005 | by dimandreasSee all my reviews

I have always been since my teens an avid fan of Stewart Granger, eagerly waiting for his next film to hit the screen. And I have been on the alert for films of his post-Hollywood period, to complete my collection. When this film came my way, I snapped it up eagerly. My disappointment was all the greater. What a waste of talent. Stewart Granger, Curt Jurgens, Adolfo Celli, Klaus Kinski in a minimal role, Karin Dor, all of them mixed up in a nonsensical and incomprehensible story, with any connection to reality being by pure chance. An awful soundtrack completed the disaster. I gave the film 3, not that it was worth it but for purely sentimental reasons. What a pity! I am sure that with better direction and a straightening up of the story, the film would have been quite a good one.
