The High And The Mighty - Collectors Edition DVD
Soar into the skies on a thrilling airborne adventure in this meticulously restored John Wayne film classic. In one of his most memorable roles, Wayne plays Dan Roman, a veteran pilot haunted by a tragic past. Now relegated to second-in-command cockpit assignments, he finds himself scheduled on a routine Honolulu-to-San Francisco flight - one that takes a terrifying, suspense-building turn when disaster strikes high above the Pacific Ocean at the point of no return. A "Who's Who" of Hollywood greats - Claire Trevor, Laraine Day, Robert Stack, Jan Sterling, Phil Harris and Robert Newton, among others - are aboard for this celebrated drama bursting with conflict and excitement. Nominated for six Academy Awards, including Best Director (William A. Wellman) and two Best Supporting Actress nods (Trevor and Sterling), the film nabbed the Oscar for Dimitri Tiomkin's unforgettable musical score.
