  1. I had to come back and watch it again. I think I’ll be a regular visitor here. I can’t believe how closely it matches one of the stories in the book, “Vanished.”

    1. The Lady Be Good story has always been etched in my memory since I first saw the movie on television in the 60s or 70s.

      1. I always talk about you when he asks me if his last mission is touching people I chose personally to be recipients.

      2. But we share and educate people, and we don’t take us too seriously…just ordinary bloggers.

    2. Interesting review on IMDB…

      Sole Survivor is one of the weirder entries in the WWII genre and difficult to classify. Written by Guerdon Trueblood as a TV movie, it tells the tale of a B-24 stranded in the Libyan desert. Comparisons are sometimes made between this and Flight of the Phoenix and shouldn’t be, as Sole Survivor really has no thematic equal. Richard Basehart and Vince Edwards are fine in their roles, although Shatner had by this time been typecast as Captain Kirk and can’t seem to shake that in his role as Gronke. Fans of Pat Wayne will enjoy a somewhat better performance than his usual, and Lou Antonio was in the middle of a career that spanned multiple decades. For some reason this one is difficult to find, which is a shame as it is absolutely unique and an experience that tends to stay with you long after the closing credits roll.
