The Man In The Sky (1957)

Director:

 Charles Crichton

Writers:

 John Eldridge (screenplay), William Rose (screenplay)

Stars:

 Jack Hawkins, Elizabeth Sellars, Jeremy Bodkin 
 
Inspired in part by David Lean'sThe Sound Barrier, Decision Against Time stars Jack Hawkins as a bold but cautious test pilot. If he wants to keep his job, Hawkins must prove the efficacy of an accident-prone airplane prototype. The pilot is plagued with Earthbound problems as well, personified by his insensitive wife (Elizabeth Sellars). In the climax, Hawkins tests his endurance (and the audience's) by refusing to bail out when the prototype bursts into flame. The original British title for Decision Against Time was Man in the Sky.
