Favorites: “Falling Boy” (1995)- David Dean- A pilot flying through a storm sees a young boy fall from the sky onto his plane. He’s forced to make an unauthorized landing in a field. There’s no one on the plane. He’s sent to a psychologist as a condition of getting his license back. Captain Brigid Masterson is assigned to look into the case. It may have something to do with a kidnapping.

About vintage45

I'm a big fan of vintage books,movies,TV shows and music. I encourage everyone to patronize your local used book/record store and pick up some of the good stuff. My posts are capsule reviews of some favorites that you may want to investigate. The albums posted aren't really reviews but items from my collection that are still available. I try and point out highlights of each one and let the music speak for itself. Thanks to all for checking out the blog.
