Watch The High and the Mighty
One disaster after another happens on this trans-Pacific flight. You have the pilot who loses his nerve! The washed-up co-pilot. The milquetoast flight engineer. The young hot shot second officer. And a cabin full of passengers with every range of problems and personalities there could possibly be. Here you have the Duke in a role he didn’t want, and a movie with the title song that became Duke’s theme. What else could any John Wayne fan want? It’s all here, and then some.
