“Taut direction…a thrilling experience with suspense mounting.”
From the best-seller by Ernest K. Gann—author of The High and the Mighty—Fate Is the Hunter details a horrific airplane crash and, in its aftermath, the desperate attempt to discover what brought plane, passengers, and crew to their fiery fate. Directed by Ralph Nelson, with superb black-and-white cinematography by Milton Krasner, this combination of disaster movie and mystery interweaves the stories of a dogged investigator (Glenn Ford), the doomed pilot (Rod Taylor), his bereaved girlfriend (Nancy Kwan), and the tragedy’s sole survivor (Suzanne Pleshette), building to a climax of breathtaking tension.
Note: Specially included on this Blu-Ray edition of Fate Is the Hunter is To Whom It May Concern: Ka Shen’s Journey, a poetic 2010 documentary about the life of co-star Nancy Kwan directed by Brian Jamieson.
