Glynis Johns, James Stewart and Marlene Dietrich in No Highway In The Sky.

James Stewart plays an aeronautical engineer who is en route to the site of a crash-landing to examine an accident. During his flight, he realizes that the plane he is on is similar to the one that crashed and might be susceptible to the metal fatigue that ruined the other craft. He tries to warn the captains on board but is met with incredulity, especially from the flight attendants who are very anxious for him not to cause any panic on the airplane. Marlene Dietrich is lovely as a famous singer on board who befriends Stewart when he announces to her that he’s a big fan, and Glynis Johns plays one of the flight attendants. Not in any way a momentous film, but a pleasant one for anyone who is a fan of the lead stars.
