Playhouse 90 was an anthology series that was telecast on CBS from 1956 to 1960. It originated from Hollywood, California and although most of the shows were broadcast live, "No Time at All" was filmed. Since live anthology drama series of the mid-1950s were usually hour-long shows, the title highlighted the network's intention to present something unusual, a weekly series of hour-and-a-half dramas rather than 60-minute plays..
"No Time at All" focuses on an airliner loaded with passengers. On a night flight from Miami to New York, the airliner develops trouble. It becomes dark due to electrical failure and the weather has turned very ugly. In cameo portrayals (with an all star cast) we see the reactions of friends and families to the possible fate of the plane passengers. We never see the plane, crew or passengers in flight. Absolutely mesmerizing.
