Ernest K Gann based the screenplay for Island in the Sky (William A Wellman, USA, 1953) on his novel of the same name. Considered one of the classic aviation films, it concerns a commercial plane that goes down in uncharted Canadian tundra, in deepest winter. A search sets out to find Capt Dooley (John Wayne) and his team.
