Product Code : EFC D 003
Flying back from a bombing raid over Germany, Squadron Leader Peter D. Carter (David Niven) is nursing a damaged plane. The crew, or that part of it left alive, has bailed out and only Peter is left -- with a shredded parachute. Knowing that death is near, Peter talks of life to June (Kim Hunter), the young radio operator trying to bring him in. Making the most of his last words, Peter prepares for eternity even as he celebrates the ephemeral. A connection born of extreme pressure forms between them; about to be separated forever, Peter and June fall in love. The twist comes when Conductor 71 (Marius Goring), a Heavenly emissary, makes a mistake; Peter survives his long plunge into the Channel.
