Interesting Example of a British Quota Quickie
17 February 2018 | by l_rawjalaurenceSee all my reviews

This is a good example of an ingenious combination of studio settings and stock footage to simulate a flight to Tokyo. The story focuses on mysterious cargo, but the real interest lies in how director Ken Hughes sustains interest through astute camera work as well as careful placement of actors in groups.
