The hanging film experiments of Wallis and Makkenchery and Pushkina and Sorokin are reviewed. The results indicate that the product of the Kutateladze number and the square root of the gas phase friction coefficient should be a constant for tubes for which the Bond number exceeds 20. A tentative dimensionless correlation of the data is advanced but more experiments are needed to resolve the mechanisms governing the phenomenon.
