Desperate Search

Film, Action and adventure

Time Out says

Not much dramatic fat on Lewis's involving open-air suspense picture about the search for a couple of children who have survived an air crash somewhere in the mountains of British Columbia. A familiar set-up brings professional and personal rivalries between Keel's reformed alcoholic father, his iron-willed ex-wife, pilot Patricia Medina, and latest (non-airborne) flame Jane Greer, but there's little sentiment in the handling of the children's plight and good-egg support from moustachioed Keenan Wynn. A minor thing perhaps, but they did a sound job with what they had.
