1953: John Wayne and "Island in the sky"


Thank God for all of those "old movies" channels.    

John Wayne did not play a cowboy in "Island in the sky".   

Instead, he was Captain Dooley, a C-47 transport plane, named the Corsair.    He was forced to land somewhere in the very cold and desolate areas north of Montreal.    Dooley and the crew battled below zero temperatures and a lack of supplies until they were found.

I liked it a lot!    One of the rescue pilots is James Arness, who became Mr Gunsmoke in the late 1950s.
