When Noah Dugan agrees to fly missionary Bernadette Lafleur and her cargo of animals to a remote island, its only because he is on the run from a couple of bookies. What neither of them know is that two of Miss Lafleur’s young students have stowed away with the animals & Miss Lafleur’s transistor radio has interfered with the plane’s instruments and they’re all now miles off course. After a forced landing on a remote island, Dugan, Bernadette, Bobby and Julie discover that they are not alone. Together with two Japanese soldiers who have been stranded on the island since WWII, they must turn the plane into a seaworthy boat if they are ever to make it home. When Bobby and Julie insist that they cannot leave the animals behind, the converted plane truly becomes a second Noah’s Ark

User Reviews: OK we have a WW II era B-29 bomber piloted by Elliot Gould contains a few farm animals, a missionary and a couple of real bothersome stowaway kids. Oh Gould’s character hates kids and animals and he’s not too fond of the missionary. You have elements of Castaway, The Flight of the Phoenix, and Father Goose. Gould is playing the MASH Gould with the wisecracks and disgust for everything he comes upon, his interplay with the missionary Genevieve Bujold is much like Father Goose’s Cary Grant with Leslie Caron.
This Noah’s Ark never tells us where it was supposed to go it does however run out of fuel crashlanding o a small Pacific island. Of course no one is on the island other than the required Japanese soldiers from WW II who have never been told the war is over. The collection of people, animals on the islands provides all the elements of the story. The film drags on is amazingly predictable with miscast Gould. You can think of 100 other actors who would have been more believable.
