help me find this movie title


Recommended Posts

Black and white movie about a plane crashing in the desert. All the characters are soldiers and they play baseball while waiting to be rescued. Turns out they are all dead and they disappear one by one when someone finds their dog tags. We can't remember if it is a movie or a tv twilight zone, but we think it is a movie. Please help if you can. Thanks

There are two: a 1960 episode of Twilight Zone called "King Nine Will Not Return," which was in b/w, and a 1970 CBS TV movie called Sole Survivor, which was in color. IIRC, and I haven't seen either of them in decades, the baseball playing was in the movie.


Stories are similar, in that they're fantasy stories based on the same true circumstances (discovery of a long-missing WW2 bomber in the Libyan Desert, which happened abt 1959). The TZ episode should be easily available; the movie Sole Survivor is not.


Check here for details on the movie and be sure to read the 5 pages of user comments: http://imdb.com/title/tt0065007/
