Richard Attenborough plays the deranged father of a little girl killed by a hit-and-run driver. An explosives expert, he boards the same flight from London to New York as the guilty driver and plots to blow the plane up. Cy Endfield directed and cowrote (with Sigmund Miller) this hard-edged, almost entirely airborne English thriller with his characteristic sense of how people show their true colors, for better and for worse, during a collective crisis. Stanley Baker is the pilot and Mai Zetterling plays Attenborough’s second wife; the capable cast also includes George Rose, Hermione Baddeley, Diane Cilento, and Sybil Thorndike. Also known as Killing Urge and Jetstream (1959).
