The Flight of the Phoenix (1965) DVD9
Pilot Frank Towns (James Stewart) and assistant Lew Moran (Richard Attenborough) run into a sandstorm while ferrying passengers from a remote Saharan oil well. Forced down way off their scheduled course, with no means of communication, the group is in big trouble. The bitter Towns blames himself for two fatalities and one serious injury, a young Italian (Gabrielle Tinti). The survivors include an English Army Captain Harris (Peter Finch) and his insolent Sergeant (Ronald Fraser), a foreman suffering from a nervous breakdown (Ernest Borgnine) and the doctor in charge (Christian Marquand), an accountant (Dan Duryea), and three drillers, an American (George Kennedy), a Mexican (Alex Montoya) and a caustic cockney (Ian Bannen). As Captain Harris debates trying to walk a hundred miles across the sand, it comes to Lew Moran's attention that another passenger, Heinrich Dorfmann (Hardy Kruger) is an aircraft designer, and has the idea that a smaller aircraft could be easily assembled from the wreckage of the old one. This wild plan seems at least a hope, but Towns won't listen to it ... because he hates the slide-rule, pushbutton future Dorfmann represents. Meanwhile, their water will only last eight or ten days ...
