Honorable Mention: The Flight of the Phoenix (1965)

The Flight of the Phoenix (1965)

From the opening moments, when James Stewart fails in his attempt to keep the small plane in flight to the denouement of will and human ingenuity that eventually saves the stranded survivors, the intensity of Flight of the Phoenix never lets up. The gritty realism of this long march through the sand will leave you feeling parched. In fact, the Sahara is as much a character in this film as the great ensemble cast.
