Trivia

The parrots in the quarantine section are very obviously stuffed birds. They do not move at all during the tracking shots in that section. See more »

Goofs

Ealing built one of its largest ever sets to represent the interior of the newly built Europa Building in the central area of what was then known as London Airport. However, this terminal, as its name implies, served only short haul airlines, long haul services used the temporary structures alongside the A4 Bath Road (known as "North Side") until the Oceanic terminal (later renamed Terminal 3) opened in 1961. Thus there would have been no BOAC personnel (or passengers) in the Europa building, as portrayed in the film. See more »

Connie and Strat are the stars
3 May 2018 | by peedee100See all my reviews

An amusing and quaint period piece with a couple of interesting parallels with life today (holocaust references and international drug smuggling). A good cast but the true stars are BOAC's Lockheed Super Constellation and the transatlantic Boeing Stratocruiser. Objects of beauty confined to museums these days.
