Broken Journey

Broken Journey

Ken Annakin (1948)

U Certificate
Fri 2 Jun 4pm - 5:45pm Talking Pictures


Our Score
A plane full of mismatched characters comes down in the Alps. Guess what happens next? Watching painfully earnest tales like this makes you wonder why anyone bothers with disaster movies, and why it took so long for Airplane! to come along and mock them. From the moment the camera mingles with the passengers, it is woefully obvious who will be the selfless do-gooders and who will be the bad eggs. Director Ken Annakin, in what was his third picture, has little idea how to freshen up the stock situations, while there are few hidden depths in the overfamiliar characters.


The survivors of a plane crash find themselves stranded in the Alps and face all manner of obstacles as they try to escape their desperate plight. Drama, starring Phyllis Calvert, James Donald and Margot Grahame.
