Movie Info

Theodore Honey (James Stewart) is a mathematician charged with discovering what caused the crash of a "Reindeer" airliner. As he travels to investigate, he realizes en route that he's flying on the very same type of airplane. Convinced it will suffer a similar accident, he deliberately sabotages it once it lands, and soon finds himself defending his sanity in an English courtroom. Fortunately, a sympathetic actress (Marlene Dietrich) and a stewardess (Glynis Johns) come to his defense.

Audience Reviews for No Highway in the Sky

    Fine work from the leads, but the story sags and goes for the predictable happy ending. There's a better father/daughter story in here that is sadly sidelined.

    Competently acted, directed, edited, and hardly anything more than that. James Stewart turns in a great performance. As a whole, the film is enjoyable from start to finish.

    A surprise of a piece as Jimmy Stewart plays a Yank over in Britain, an seriously absentminded science geek kind of guy, working for an airline, who's discovered that the brand new flagship has a serious flaw. It doesn't seem like much, but it's an Brit film entirely, which is to say that the characterizations are everything, and so they carry the story here. Marlene Dietrich is on hand as a touring movie star doubtful about her life choices, Jack Hawkins ably leads us into the tale, Kenneth More and Wilfred Hyde-White light the background, but the film belongs to the diminutive Glynis Johns as the soul who recognizes the true worth in Stewart's bumbling, stumbling, distracted professor. Really enjoyable.

    Despite what my old man will tell you, No Highway in the Sky is not a great movie. It's got a great cast and the story had some potential to be a real potboiler but it just kind of turns into Jimmy Stewart trying to do something different and doing a pretty good job at it. Marlene Dietrich plays herself and at times I felt like I was watching Harvey without a lot of the humor and the invisible rabbit. When I got done watching No Highway in the Sky I started wondering why Jimmy Stewart wasn't better known for this movie. The more I think about it, the less I wonder...
