Beware of the Dog
by Roald Dahl

DOWN below there was only a vast white undulating sea of cloud. Above there was the sun, and the sun was white like the clouds, because it is never yellow when one looks at it from high in the air.

He was still flying the Spitfire. His right hand was on the stick, and he was working the rudder bar with his left leg alone. It was quite easy. The machine was flying well . . .

Just happened to be watching Turner Classic Movies today, and saw that 36 Hours (1964 - James Garner, Eva Marie Saint, Rod Taylor) will be on TCM on Monday 11th, 4:15 PM.

36 Hours is based upon Roald Dahl's story Beware of the Dog. The plot turns on a tiny detail that is overlooked by the Nazis. If you watch carefully at the beginning of the movie you will know what the detail is.

Edited to add - If you know what the plot detail is, do not disclose it until after the movie airs on Monday.
