One of Hollywood's most popular leading women of the 1950s, Lana Turner (Imitation of Life) stars alongside Oscar nominee Jeff Chandler (Broken Arrow) in this inventive 1958 film part comedy, part romance, part thriller about the lengths to which we'll go for love. In the aftermath of World War Two, former Air Force colonel Mike Dandridge (Chandler) launches a lucrative air-ferry service with wartime pal Al Reynolds (Richard Denning, Creature from the Black Lagoon). With business booming, Mike hires the gifted and gorgeous Maggie Colby (Turner) as his lead pilot.... Together, Mike and Maggie take to the skies and travel the world. In each new city they hit London, Madrid, Paris, Japan sparks fly, and the pair find themselves deeper and deeper in what promises to be a fun-filled, one-of-a-kind romance. But as the stakes are raised for Mike and Maggie both in their lives at home and in the air the duo discovers that the lifestyle they've grown to love might be too difficult to sustain. [show more]

Jack Arnold directs this 1950s drama starring Lana Turner and Jeff Chandler. When pilot Mike Dandridge (Chandler) meets his co-pilot Maggie Colby (Turner) who is to accompany him on a flight to Japan, the pair immediately get on and find themselves forming a romantic attachment. As time passes, marriage and a baby emerge onto their horizon, but as Maggie gets more and more fed up of being the one to stay home with the baby, she demands that they reverse roles and that Mike look after the baby while she works. When Mike decides to take the baby with him on a flight to London, a foggy atmosphere makes landing difficult leaving Maggie not knowing whether she can trust her husband.
