Details

British multi-narrative drama based on the book by John Fores and directed by Basil Dearden, chronicling a fictional fog-bound day in the life of London's Heathrow airport. The film offers vignettes of the lives of various disparate characters including pilot Gus Randall (Anthony Steel), whose chronic gambling problem is putting his life at risk, chief duty officer Nick Milbourne (Robert Beatty), who yearns to be a pilot himself, American engineer Bill (David Lorenz), who is in love with Jewish girl Leah (Margo Lorenz), and Captain Brent (James Robertson Justice), whose concerns about the design of a new aircraft prove to be well-founded.
