Movie Info

Ted Stryker (Dana Andrews) has drifted through life unsuccessfully since he led a dreadful air attack in World War II. When his wife, Ellen (Linda Darnell), and his son leave him, Ted hurries onto their plane, where he tries to convince Ellen that he has changed. Meanwhile, many of the people on the flight, including the pilot (Elroy Hirsch), fall ill with food poisoning. It's left up to Ted, with help from Captain Treleaven (Sterling Hayden) in air control, to safely land the plane.

    Corny, campy fun. The inspiration for the classic comedy Airplane.

    One of the first so called disaster movies centers around a plane full of passengers sick from food poisoning and a old army pilot named Ted Striker who is asked to bring it down safely but theres just a few problems bad weather and Ted has flashbacks from the war. if anyone has heard this plot before its cause this is the orignal movie that *Airplane* spoofed a bunch of years later except this isnt played for laughs not a great movie but not horrible either pretty decent amount of suspense yet overdramatic like most 50's movies.

    A non-comedic version of and basis for Airplane! If you've seen Airplane! you'll laugh, but at the same time it's so campy you just may laugh anyway. Especially when Sterling Hayden says "looks like I picked the wrong week to quit smoking."
