Island in the Sky (1953)

This John Wayne vehicle about civil airline pilots drafted into the American Air Force during the world war is a simple rescue story about a plane, captained by indomitable Captain Dooley (John Wayne), which not only crashes but does so in uncharted territory.

The actual plotting is pretty well done with a bit of tension in some scenes, and the acting is okay on the whole. Pretty well filmed air scenes during the crash and the rescue operation too. Some of the dialogue is a little stilted and the voiceover is absolutely terrible though, making this a decidedly average film overall.
