Synopsis:
"Sole Survivor" is the fictional 1970 cult classic founded on fact. In 1960, the ruins of an American bomber were found in the Libyan desert, but the remains of the crew were never located. In Guerdon Trueblood's teleplay, the ghosts of a bomber crew hang around their derelict plane, awaiting the day that their bones will be recovered and given a decent burial. The sole survivor, navigator Russell Hamner (Richard Basehart), has in the intervening 25 years become a General. He joins an investigation team that has come across the wreckage, while the ghosts, headed by Major Devlin (Vince Edwards), plot to expose Hamner as a coward who deserted his post and left his crew mates to die.

Haunting tale for grown-ups - Sole Survivor review by AS

Spoiler Alert
26/08/2017

An early made-for-TV movie that is far and away superior to many of today's cinema releases. Vince Edwards and William Shatner on good form as the crash investigators. Richard Basehart convincingly coming apart as the flawed general. Excellent choreography of the ghost bomber crew as they move on and around their crashed plane sets them apart from the everyday actions of the living. The tension ratchets up without any blatant intrusive music or spooky special effects till the highly satisfying end. An original and sophisticated take on the genre.
