Synopsis

Jack Holt does his usual Jack Holt thing in the Columbia quickie Flight into Nowhere. Holt is cast as airline pilot Jim Horne (amusingly, considering that the actor was deathly afraid of flying in real life), who hopes to run his own South American transport service. Horne's ace flyer Bill Kellogg (Dick Purcell) annoys everyone with his braying arrogance, leading Horne to "punish" Bill by preventing him from going on a particularly dangerous mission. Incensed, Bill defies orders and flies the mission with a stolen plane, which right on cue runs out of gas in the middle of the jungle. Horne spearheads an expedition to locate the missing Bill, who by now has been "adopted" by a friendly Peruvian tribe and doesn't want to go back to civilization. Meanwhile, Bill's sweetheart Joan Hammond (Jacqueline Wells) anxiously waits back at the base, biting her nails right down to the nubs. The film's best scenes take place amongst the Peruvian natives, incongruously headed by white-maned Shakespearean actor Fritz Leiber. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
