From acclaimed director Basil Dearden, creator of such classic, celebrated British films such as The Blue Lampand and The League of Gentlemen, comes a bedazzling ensemble piece that encapsulates the early days of recreational aviation. Starring Bernard Lee (who later found fame as James Bond's "M"), James Robertson Justice (Doctor In The House) and Carry On star Sid James, OUT OF THE CLOUDS perfectly encapsulates the glamour and excitement of post-war air travel.
OUT OF THE CLOUDS follows the complex lives of several passengers and members of an airline crew during a typical bustling day at Heathrow airport. A pilot dealing with his gambling addiction, a chief duty officer who dreams of becoming a pilot, a love struck American engineer and an extremely popular air hostess are just some of the unforgettable characters within the rich tapestry of tales that make OUT OF THE CLOUDS such entertaining and compulsing viewing.
