Movie Info

In this 1939 drama, nine passengers from all walks of life and a crew of three take off from Los Angeles, bound for Panama City, but a sudden storm blows them off course and causes the plane to crash in the Amazon jungle. As the weeks pass, and the danger of death at the hands of violent natives grows, ex-prostitute Peggy (Lucille Ball), pilot Bill Brooks (Chester Morris), Detective Crimp (John Carradine), and their fellow passengers struggle to repair the plane -- but only five can escape.

Audience Reviews for Five Came Back

  • Dec 28, 2019
    A plane goes down in the Amazonian jungles, headhunter country. Can the assortment of survivors learn to work as a team to get out? And do their experiences together change them at all? John Farrow directs this beaut of a B-film (and its remake in 1956!), and template for later disaster films, with an eye to getting to the gist in a hurry. Good stuff.
