    5.0 out of 5 stars Airport Terminal Pack - A Slice of History November 15, 2003
    Format:DVD
    The Airport Terminal Pack is the definitive collection of the Airport series of disaster films produced in the 1970s. The release comes in a beautifully made digi-pack case which looks absolutely fantastic. This is surrounded by an outer box, with the title of the set embossed - definitely a quality much higher than originally expected! Inside has a picture montage from all the films, and a one sheet insert with a blurb about each film.
    Now, about the movies...
    Airport was a commercial box office success when it was released in 1970, taking over $100 million at the US box office. Based on a novel by Arthur Hailey, the story is set at an international airport with the main plot being about a passenger who sets off a bomb in an airliner. There are a a few intricately woven sub-plots in the film, which keep the viewer entertained throughout. Wonderfully acted by the cast, which includes Dean Martin, Jacqueline Bisset, and Burt Lancaster. Helen Hayes won the best supporting actress Academy Award for the film, and Maureen Stapleton won the Golden Globe for best supporting actress. The film is also lauded in aviation circles as being one of the most technically accurate "aviation films" in history. A very story oriented film, and fabulous to watch - definitely a must-see!
    Airport 1975 is about an airliner that hits a private plane mid-air, incapacitating the pilots. Stewardess Karen Black has to fly the plane - and will they or won't they land safely? This also did well at the US box office, with over $40 million taken. Another all star cast including Charlton Heston, Linda Blair, Gloria Swanson (in her last film role) and Helen Reddy as the singing nun. A lot of the things that happen in this film were spoofed in Airplane, which makes this a must-see so that you get the jokes in that film!

    2.0 out of 5 stars Definite framing/mastering error on Aiport 1975 May 4, 2004
    By A Customer
    Format:DVD
    There is definitely a mastering error on Airport 1975; the picture is nowhere near as wide as it SHOULD be.
    While it's a bit of an exaggeration to say tires and engines are oval, the image is definitely not mastered properly. I'd say the aspect ratio is either more like 2.2:1 when it should be 2.35:1, or Airport 1975 was actually 2.4:1 or so.
    This error can easily be seen by comparing the new anamorphic pressing with the earlier GoodTimes DVD or the Universal LaserDisc release. People look very tall and thin as compared to how they should look (and yes, my DVD player is set for 4:3 Letterbox, not 16:9.)
    Note the other three films in this collection are mastered correctly; only Airport 1975 shows this error (of course, the film I bought the collection for an anamorphic copy of.)
    I hope Universal corrects this error as they did with the Back to the Future trilogy, and really you probably won't notice it if you aren't aware of it, but once you are the error is very, very obvious and distracting and you'll wonder why the airport has so many short, stubby emergency vehicles. ;-)

    3.0 out of 5 stars The law of diminishing returns August 8, 2010
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    Let's cut to the cheese: Some of these movies are not good. The last one especially is a real turkey.

    Still, I give this collection (Airport Terminal Pack, also confusingly titled "The Franchise Collection" on the boxed set) 3 stars because you get all four films for an MSRP of under twenty bucks (often on sale here for even less) and sometimes you just need a classic disaster flick. To be fair, you may not want to watch either of the last two sequels more than once.

    The best by a long shot is the first effort. Airport was actually nominated for ten Oscars in 1970 (Helen Hayes was the only winner). Airport '75 (featuring the infamous mid-air pilot transfer) was the basis for many of the spoof jokes seen in Airplane!. The plot started getting ridiculous by Airport '77 (hijacked plane underwater in the Bermuda Triangle??), and a couple years later the script writers evidently decided to let it all hang loose with the (almost) so-bad-it's-good The Concorde...Airport '79.

    The best part about this collection? Charting the career progress of George Kennedy's iconic Joe Patroni throughout the decade.

    1970: Chief Mechanic ("They don't call them emergencies anymore. They call them Patronis")
    1975: Vice President of Operations
    1977: Aviation Consultant
    1979: wait for it...Concorde pilot! ("They don't call it the cockpit for nothing, honey")

    My middle-of-the-road rating also reflects the fact that all four movies are bundled on two double-sided discs, which are in my experience far more likely to scratch or even crack over time.

    Three of the movies in this set look great, and fortunately...the true classic, "Airport", is one of them. With the exception of the hammy George Kennedy, this movie really WAS a classic.
    However, if someone has a copy of "Airport 75" from this "pack" that is in proper ratio, it can only mean that Universal fixed the problem. My guess is that it is more likely that some aren't as discriminating a viewer as those of us who noticed this problem. It certainly isn't that those with complaints with this DVD have the "aspect ratio on their tv or DVD player is set wrong". How could that be if every other DVD looks fine?
    Universal is known for shoddy workmanship. Purchase this one at your own risk....as I'm betting they haven't corrected the "Airport 75" transfer problem since the set's initial release.
