| excellent film which works well at least on two levels
If you already like Jack Hawkins' acting work you will like this film. He has a central role which he delivers in his usual commanding style. The drama works on two levels - the technical challenge of trying to land a stricken aircraft and the emotional challenge and responsibility of being married and trying to provide for a family. Both are dealt with admirably in this excellent drama. My only criticism is that Elizabeth Sellars is miscast as Jack's wife. Her contribution of wasp waist glamour is an unwanted distraction and probably even reduces the power of the film a little.
