Marlene Dietrich, Glynis Johns James Stewart (Actors),
Henry Koster (Director) | Rated: NR
Run Time: 98 minutes
Jimmy Stewart is the original absent-minded professor in this fine film. He plays an engineer who is convinced that the tail section of the passenger plane he is on will fall off after so many hours of flight. He's not comfortable around people, and focuses his life on facts and figures. So much so, he has trouble remembering the most basic of details that are not related to his work. A fine perfomance by Jimmy and the entire cast, and the aircraft design is interesting to say the least. Marlene Dietrich does a turn in a supporting role, Glynis Johns plays an airline stewardess who looks after the eccentric Stewart, and Janette Scott is wonderful as Stewart's young, lonely daughter. Although the film was made under the auspices of 20th Century Fox, the film has the feel of an Ealing Studios production. It's a real treat for fans of the Ealing type of film, and in fact, a treat for anyone who likes good film.
