A commercial DC-4 airliner develops engine problems on a trans-Pacific flight from Hawaii to California. The pilot (Robert Stack) loses his nerve, so it’s up to the washed-up co-pilot (John Wayne) to bring the plane in safely. As he prepares for a crash landing, the passengers reassess their lives. This amazing film is the template for disaster movies, with Dimitri Tiomkin’s Oscar-winning score and a cast list that reads like a who’s who of 1950s film! Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see it on the big screen!
