The High and the Mighty

John Wayne and a cast of others were in this airplane disaster movie, that’s all about survival and trying to their destination. From Hawaii to California, passing the ‘point of no return’ in just one night, a passenger plane had one of the four engines caught on fire. It was damaged as they feared on crashing.

They thought they were gonna crash in the water, so they had to get prepared. They even threw out junk out the window in order to lighten the plane. However, it came to a good end just when they were almost out of fuel. A kid who was gonna see his mom back in California was asleep on the plane, for the entire trip. He didn’t wake up until he arrived. He didn’t even know what was going on.

Promises were made to the passengers and pilots after this was all over as they arrived safely. Each of the passengers met their people there, as the pilots inspected the plane.

I can’t say anymore, if that’s a spoiler alert. This movie did won an Academy Award for Best Score and it’s title too. And was nominated for an Oscar. For what I saw for the first time, than William Shatner seeing a gremlin on a plane, I give this 7 1/2 out of 10 stars.
