A novel by Curt Riess was the launching pad for this German-French co-production. The title translates to Intermediate Landing in Paris, which also sums up the premise. While making a stopover in the City of Light, American pilot Dieter Borsche becomes involved with criminal intrigue and a drug-smuggling ring. In addition, he finds love in the shape of Dany Robin. Perhaps the film has one plot twists too many, but this adds to the overall enjoyment. Filmed on location at the Paris airport, Zwischenlandung in Paris has enjoyed its widest American exposure on television.
