    Movie - WW2 plane crash and crew were ghosts

    MovieCollector OH Thanks..Even though it isn't the movie we are looking for..it does sound VERY interesting..and I hope to check it out. Even in the synopsis they do mention the words "sole survivor"..LOL. Maybe it could lead to that which we ARE looking for. Thank you! These are my favorite kind of movies!! Also..I just remembered a couple of other creepy movies that are a bit along these lines. I think slayton referred to the first one in one of his earlier posts. That movie is Between Two Worlds (1944) which mostly takes place aboard a cruise ship during WWII. And, the other begins on a plane heading to an island, and the name of that movie is Haunts of the Very Rich (1972) that has an all-star cast with names such as: Lloyd Bridges, Cloris Leachman, Anne Francis, Ed Asner, Robert Reed, Moses Gunn, Donna Mills and More....Both are intriguing films..that can be found on youtube.

    Marysara1 Thank you for your quick response. And yes, we have eliminated a couple of more films now. Thank you for letting me know that Rendezvous has an actress in it, because as we know..the film we are seeking has an all male cast. And..I just now found the episode of Rendezvous on Youtube, and there is definitely an actress in the episode. And, you are also right about the actors in the film we seek. I cannot remember any of them..so they couldn't have become too famous. And, Sole Survivor does have some famous actors in it, that were not in the elusive film we are seeking. Of late, I've been calling it a film instead of a movie..because it could have been a one hour TV show as well..making it appear like it was a full length movie. I was born in 1955 and saw it in the 60s..probably around the time that it may have first aired. But, others....just like you have said that they definitely saw the film in the 80s..remembering that they watched it after school. And, a couple of others said they saw it in the 70s. I hope the fact that this film was seen by people in the 60s, 70s and 80s..will help us in our quest. At least it aired more than once as far as we can tell, and probably at least 3 times in a 20 yr. span. If you have any other ideas..let me know. And, thanks again.

    Marysara1 Are you possibly referring to a Westinghouse production called "The Strike" by Rod Serling?? You can look it up under Rod Serling-Studio One Drama-The Strike. In the film The Strike you will hear the lines "Come in Razor Red". You can also find a synopsis on this site. The Strike is a military-airplane drama as well..but not the one we are looking for. I have gone through as many old films and TV shows as I can..looking for the ghost/plane film we all remember..and I can now recall most of them. Look up The Strike and see if that is the "Come in Razor Red" that you are looking for, and let me know please. Thanks.

    slaytonf The reason why I kept mentioning that it is said that Joseph Heller coined the phrase "Catch 22"....is that perhaps he didn't..and people only thought he had because the phrase became so huge after the novel and the 1970 movie by the same name. Perhaps the phrase "Catch 22" had been around before Joseph Heller supposedly coined it. And besides..there are lots of movies that have the same name with no copyright infringement suits. For example Independence Day (1983), Independence Day (1996), Independence Day:Resurgence (2016), etc. And..I only meant that a British made for TV movie might be harder to find in the U.S. Also..the film that I saw was definitely NOT an adaptation of Joseph Heller's novel or the movie later on..nothing like it at all..would never be called an adaptation. I'm not grabbing at anything out of desperation; I'm just trying to stir memories by mentioning some of the ideas that others have had. The "Search For" saga continues..........

    Movie - WW2 plane crash and crew were ghosts

    slaytonf Hmm..Nope..LOL..Not Sole Survivor (1970). Had much more of a 50s-esque feel to it, even though I watched it in the 60s. I would love to get my hands on the old Lights Out episode called Rendezvous..even if just to rule it out as a possibility. And, I also keep thinking about another site where a woman claimed that the name of the movie we are looking for is Catch 22, which was a phrase supposedly coined by Joseph Heller for his 1961 novel by the same name. Now..if it is true that the phrase "Catch 22" was coined in 1961..that would mean that this black & white Catch 22 movie or show (that so many are looking for)..would have obviously aired perhaps mid 60s..which matches up to when I saw it in 1964. The problem is..in addition to the 1970 Sole Survivor..we have yet another 1970 movie called Catch 22..also involving aircraft and military. But, like Soul Survivor, this 1970 Catch 22 film also has a different plot from the film we are seeking. The woman on the other site said that the black and white older film..possibly from the 60s, and also called Catch 22..has been swallowed up on the internet and everywhere else..by the 1970 Catch 22 film..making it nearly impossible to find it. Does anyone else recall the movie we are looking for as possibly being called Catch 22..but with a different plot from the 1961 novel and the 1970 movie by the same name?? I'm interested to know if anyone else recalls this film as possibly being called Catch 22?? And, one other person suggested that the name of the movie was Home Run..but it is important to point out that Home Run was the name of the downed plane in the 1970 Sole Survivor..so I'm a bit skeptic of the film being called Home Run. Oh, and someone else suggested that this 1960s (possibly named)..Catch 22 black & white film..may have been a made for TV British movie..which could be another reason why the film has vanished into obscurity. If I had to choose one of the aforementioned possibilities..I would probably go with Catch 22. But..if anyone decides to search along these lines..remember it is not the plot of the 1961 Catch 22 novel or the 1970 Catch 22 film. And..as for the 1970 Sole Survivor film....bury that movie..with the crew of the crashed plane..in the sands of the desert. AND DON'T MENTION IT AGAIN!!

    Movie - WW2 plane crash and crew were ghosts

    darkblue, I understand that much of what you are saying can be true, because it has happened to me..where a movie turns out to be different than I remember it. However, I have been searching for this movie since I was a child and first saw it in the 60s. This movie had such a profound effect on me that I searched the old TV Guides for it week after week, since I was a kid..hoping it would play again. We only got 3 TV channels back then..so the search itself was quite simple. But, the movie never aired on TV again..at least I could not find it in the listings. When video stores first opened, I began asking them if they could find the movie for me..with no luck. And, when I got a computer, I began searching the internet for this movie..with still no luck. The storyline of this movie affected me to the point where it essentially became a lifelong obsession for me. I am 63 years old now, and have been searching since I was 9. My mother watched it with me, and we have been talking about this fantastic movie for 54 years now because that movie had a profound effect on my mother as well. And, you are right about another point you made too. This baseball/ghost plane movie may never be found..but not because it didn't exist. It existed alright..but.. it has been buried in the obscurity of the sands of time.

    Perhaps another person in the Twilight Zone, with the rest of us. At least if Rod shows up..we'll know to stop looking for an answer. But..No Rod..and the search goes on and on..........and on..........

    Movie - WW2 plane crash and crew were ghosts

    Thenryb A couple of people have suggested that the name of this older black & white movie (that no one can locate), is called Catch 22. However, if this is the case..then our missing movie has been swallowed up by the 1970 movie of the same name..Catch 22. Just like the plot of this older black & white movie has been overshadowed by another 1970 movie called Sole Survivor. So, with a name like Catch 22, that most people recognize as the well known 1970 Catch 22....and a plot like the fairly well known 1970 Sole Survivor..how are we ever going to find it? Also, the plane is named the Home Run in the Sole Survivor movie..and many people believe that the plane was also named the Home Run in the older black & white missing movie. It would make sense because even though the ghosts play baseball in both Sole Survivor & the missing black & white movie..as I recall, they played baseball a whole lot more in the missing black & white film. In fact, there was a scene when one character kept throwing the ball and the ball kept coming back to him. And..everytime the characters tried to walk away from the crashed aircraft....they would end up back where they started. Thank you for your info.

    Movie - WW2 plane crash and crew were ghosts

    waynejkC Thank you for elaborating with even more details about the movie that so many of us remember & are looking for. And, you are quite right..it is extremely frustrating to hear people insist that it's Sole Survivor..when we know absolutely that it is not. And for me, I never even saw Sole Survivor until fairly recently, and my first thought was "Wow..this movie has a similar plot to a black & white movie that I saw back in the 60s..but the black & white movie was creepier, and, by far..much more unsettling". And..the plot difference in Sole Survivor about the crew member who bailed out, lived and became a high ranking officer..actually annoyed me. I thought that plot was stupid, and made the plot of the black & white movie so much better than Sole Survivor. And, another reason for me why the black & white movie we are looking for is not Sole Survivor is....I was a Star Trek fan, and I would definitely have recognized William Shatner in any film that he was in that I viewed. And so,you are absolutely correct again, waynejkC....William Shatner was no where to be found in the black & white film we are looking for. So, it is ridiculous for people to insist that the movie we are looking for is Sole Survivor. And, there is one more annoying suggestion that people come up with to explain our memories of this film. Many people suggest that we are combining Sole Survivor & Twilight Zone in our minds to come up with this black & white ghost story that no one can find. I NEVER saw Sole Survivor until fairly recently. And, in the Twilight Zone episode they are talking about, the so-called ghosts don't even speak, & the plot isn't the same at all. So, even if I did combine those 2 stories....the plot would definitely NOT.. end up being the same as the black & white movie. And so fellow "Rememberees"..We must continue our quest & never give up. There is an answer out there somewhere..and I for one intend to find it.

    Movie - WW2 plane crash and crew were ghosts

    I recently spent the entire night watching Sole Survivor (the 1970 movie with William Shatner), Twilight Zone: King Nine Will Not Return, Ghost Bomber: The Lady Be Good, and even The Flight of the Phoenix. The Black & White movie (or show), that I watched back in the 60s was none of the aforementioned. It was similar to Sole Survivor; both had a crew from an airplane crashed in the desert. But, there was one huge and startling difference. The men in the black & white movie did not know that they were dead and neither did we, until the creepy, unsettling end of the film. And, the crash had no survivors. In Sole Survivor, one of the crew bailed out, lived, and became a high ranking officer. This was not part of the plot in the black & white movie that I saw. And..the black and white movie and the way it played out was just all around creepier than Sole Survivor, so I hate when people insist that Sole Survivor is the movie we are looking for...because it most definitely is not. I wish I could find that awesome film that so many remember, including me. I've even been searching through old TV shows trying to find it, such as Alfred Hitchcock, One Step Beyond, Lights Out, old Chiller Theater Movies. It has to be out there somewhere. And, there has to be someone who knows where this film came from, and why we can't find it. Some have suggested that it might be a British made for TV film..even though the plot appears to be taking place in the U.S. Perhaps that could be the reason why the film is so difficult to find. I have been trying to find this film since I saw it in the 60s. Many yrs ago, I used to search the TV Guides to see if it was in the listings because usually films were eventually repeated at some point..but I never saw this film again. It's enough to drive a person crazy.
