Aviation purists will notice a few flaws for instance the "point of no return" is mute flying from an Island to the mainland and the fact that they land downwind actually they might do this if fuel was critical. The travails of the passengers helped to build our interest in the humanity of the drama. The music will stay in your head for days even when you wish it wouldn't.

A classic you can watch time after time and each time you will see something you missed. Guest More than 1 year ago It's been a long wait for this classic to be released. Why has this taken an Act of Congress to yank this from the vault? The plot involves a night flight from Hawaii to San Francisco. An engine blows in mid flight and the pilot Robert Stack , having no place to set the plane down over the Pacific, and running desparately low on fuel, begins to emotionally unravel under the stress.
Wayne is the co-pilot and finally takes charge of the plane in the nick of time and saves the day or should I say "night". I have given The High and the Mighty a 4 star rating as opposed to the expected 5 , because the only time that I have seen this movie was on t. Perhaps as a child of 10 I did not fully appreciate the more intricate plot and character developments than I was used to in the standard Walt Disney movies that graced my viewing pleasure at that period in my life.

Nevertheless, I do remember my father a die hard Duke fan watched it with me and we had a great evening together. I must have whistled that tune for a week afterwards! Anyway, I have waited impatiently for this movie to be released for many years now. John Wayne is, as usual, outstanding as the co-pilot hero! I recommend this movie to all Duke fans, as well as all fans who love a great suspense drama that will bring you to the edge of your seat.
