Quick Overview

Starring Fred MacMurray, Joan Bennett, Zasu Pitts, Alan Baxter, Fred Keating, Brian

Donlevy, John Howard

Directed by Mitchell Leisen



Print: black/white

Runtime: 77 min.

Genre: mystery

Print Quality: B



Making a transcontinental plane flight in only thirteen hours was quite an achievement when

this film was made in 1936-but it was not an impossible achievement, as indicated by

Paramount's last-minute decision to 'downsize' the film's original title, Twenty Hours by Air.

In anticipation of Airport 34 years later, womanizing pilot Jack Gordon (Fred MacMurray) is

called upon to safely guide his plane through a blinding blizzard. His task is complicated by a

trio of crooks who are escaping from the law after pulling a jewel heist, and by a shady

nobleman (Fred Keating) who offers Gordon a large amount of money if he will land the

plane before San Francisco. In the climax, one of the passenger hijacks the plane, only to be

foiled by-of all people-an obnoxious brat of a youngster (Bennie Bartlett). And, oh, yes,

before this eventful flight has reached its conclusion, self-style Lothario Jack has decided

to settle down with one girl, wealthy Felice Rollins (Joan Bennett)-who during one of the

many crises is briefly pressed into service as Jack's copilot. Thirteen Hours by Air was

produced with the technical assistance of United Airlines.
