A classic for us old timers.
on October 6, 2014
I've always loved this movie. My age is telling on me. Heralds back to the days of large-scale disaster movies with as many big stars as they could muster. The music, the stars and the books from which these block-busters were from ... Only us baby-boomers can appreciate them.
For those not familiar with Airport, I urge you to see it. They don't make them like this now. The music was an integral part of the entire movie. Without it, the action would not be so exciting. The faces of some of the aging super-stars lend a level of credibility to the entire movie, even when some of those faces are little more than cameo appearances. This movie follows very closely the book of the 60's, and put a new fear of flying into the traveling public. The fear of a bomb-carrying passenger was planted firmly into the minds of all who flew ... little did we know then that THIS new type of terrorism would some day pale in comparison to what we now know it can be.
It will seem corny to some, but this was and IS one of my all time favorite movies.
