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.
