This movie is spectacular. When they were stuck on a deserted, 70 degrees below island even i was shivering; they were such great actors. John Wayne was actually assistant producer/director-while at the same time playing a spectacular pilot in the movie. Based on a true story- Ernest K. Gann's survival after a bumpy ride down in a huge transport plane. A simply amazing movie. P.S.-watch the special features-it has behind the scenes and super interesting backgrounds of the actors! (watch other John Wayne produced movies too!)
