The Night My Number Came Up DVD (Region 1) Black & White. Michael Redgrave, Sheila Sim, Alexander Knox.
A thrilling classic with great performances by all. An air marshal in the Far East, has had a nightmare about crashing in a Dakota plane in an isolated spot off the Japanese coast. He is due to fly to Tokyo with his aide in a Liberator plane, so the uneasiness caused by his dream (which has eight people on the airship) is allayed. Then, due to a series of circumstances beyond his control, the two are diverted from the Liberator and placed aboard a Dakota with the same people he's dreamed about.
Little by little, all the worst parts of the dream come to pass. The plane is trapped in a storm and is tossed around the sky, the oxygen becomes thin - but will the terrifying climax of his dream come true? A frightening movie for anyone who has ever boarded a plane and wondered if this was the one which would go down in flames. Don't see it before you have to fly.
