Rated U by the BBFC


Adventure film set in post-World War II subarctic Canada, starring John Wayne as Dooley, a former army pilot now flying transport missions, who is forced to crash-land his fuel-starved plane on a frozen lake after it strays from its course. A desperate game of survival begins as Dooley and his men confront a meagre food supply, limited shelter, inadequate clothing, a primitive emergency radio transmitter and an impending arctic storm. Meanwhile, Dooley's fellow pilots and their crews launch an air search of the bleak, uncharted landscape - grimly aware that the possibility of rescuing of the missing men is diminishing with every tick of the clock. Lloyd Nolan, Walter Abel, James Arness, Andy Devine, and Harry Carey Jr co-star.
