"Zero Hour!" is a 1957 movie written by Arthur Hailey, starring Dana Andrews, Linda Darnell, and Sterling Hayden. "Zero Hour!" served as the basis for the much more widely known spoof "Airplane!". The film was a remake of Hailey's 1956 Canadian Broadcasting Corporation play "Flight into Danger". Hailey also co-wrote a novel with John Castle based on the same premise, titled "Flight Into Danger: Runway Zero-Eight" (1958).

The rights to the movie were purchased by the makers of the 1980 parody film "Airplane!", and they were able to use the screenplay almost verbatim. In later years, the film was acquired by Warner Bros. Pictures. The film was released on DVD by Warner Home Video on June 26, 2007.
