Watch Airport 1975 - Alternative Versions.
Air travel in the 1970s (which was before fare laws made it more
still retained a certain amount of chic. It was expensive enough that a
of people had still never flown. In a family with five kids, our mode of
transportation was a Volkswagen Bus. The Brady Bunch was the only big
family I knew who went on vacations involving air travel. (And for the
record, my first flight was in 1987, when I was 22).
This movie has so many hilarious moments in it, it's hard to catch all of
them. First, Karen Black, that witchy-looking broad who wore the Zulu
in "Trilogy of Terror" has a few intimate moments with Charlton Heston,
Cockpit Moses, AKA NRA is My Copilot. I'm sorry, but the idea of him and
her together ... ewwww. But I digress.
Next, we have the legendary Gloria Swanson, assaying the role of ...
Swanson. What this consists of is: droning on endlessly into a tape
recorder (or to her luckless secretary, who probably would have considered
plane crash a welcome diversion) about her fascinating life, how she was
rebel" in her career, etc. -- the only thing she leaves out is what it was
like to be bundling with JFK's daddy -- and wearing this bizarre sort of
burnoose that ends up looking like a man-eating nun's habit. Which sets
up nicely for the introduction of two nunly stereotypes.
Sister Martha Scott displays a traditional habit, including a wimple, and
traditional outlook. Sister Helen Reddy (I swear I'm not making this up)
wearing a post-Vatican II modified habit and looks a lot like Julie
in "The Sound of Music." Which is ironic given later events.
Getting thoroughly plowed in the airport bar are Mindy's dad, the guy who
never wanted to have sex with Audra Lindley, and Carmine Vespucci. They
into Myrna Loy, who you'd think was an ordinary old-lady type, only to
reveal that she swills boilermakers at every possible opportunity. If
you're wondering why this was even a plot point, join the
And now, on to the plane. What a marvel of design that baby was! Those
seats were the size of Lazy Boy recliners, even in coach class. To think
that if only I'd been born to a millionaire, I could have experienced
in the days before you get shoehorned into a seat the size of a toy poodle
carrier with your knees in your face ... and not only that, THIS plane has
groovy spiral staircase leading up the flight deck, so that the passengers
can ogle the stews' legs as they rush back and forth with coffee, tea or
Just when we think the ham can't get sliced any thicker, they wheel Linda
Blair onto the plane in the role of a young girl (Sister Martha
unnecessarily informs Sister Helen, "It's a young girl!" as if Sister
couldn't see that). And not just any young girl. A young girl who is
DESPERATELY in need of a kidney transplant. Played by an actress who
doesn't seem to catch on to the fact that someone in desperate need of a
kidney transplant isn't going to be beaming and bubbling over about how
"exciting" it is to look at all the people. However, since Linda was
assaying yet another of the roles in her 1970s Put Upon Damsel collection,
can't fault her too much.
Meanwhile, at another airport, a former Air Force Glory Boy from "The Best
Years of Our Lives" is preparing to journey home to Boise, Idaho. He
home, and the phone is answered by none other than the blonde broad who
Uncle Charlie's apron and put the wrecking ball to "My Three Sons." She's
his wife (how is it that all the lovely young actresses in this film are
head over heels in love with these geriatric actors? Point to ponder).
ignoring the forecasts of bad weather and the ominously prescient comment
of a friend who says he's looking pale, our lone pilot leaps into his
Cline Special and heads out in the middle of a driving
Now, this sets up the pivotal scene. We have a large 747 loaded with 150
people (those seats were ROOMY, man) and an itty bitty plane with a guy
who's starting to not feel so good, and they're both circling Salt Lake
City, waiting for permission to land. Until Air Force Glory Boy has a
attack and his plane collides with the jet in midair.
Particularly since September 11, it's blackly amusing to see all the
passengers sitting so calmly and obediently in their seats after the
collision. Even if we were to suspend rational thought long enough to
accept the idea that a collision that sucks out the first officer wouldn't
be accompanied by enough pressure to suck out the entire flight crew and
maybe the back wall of the flight deck, the fact that everyone just sat
there, bundled up in their coats and cheesy purple airline blankets, while
"THE STEWARDESS IS FLYING THE PLANE?" (thank you, Sid Caesar) is still
hilarious to comprehend.
Now, lest I give away the Cheez Whiz ending too much, let me just say that
don't understand why, if everyone else got shoved out the inflatable
Karen Black and Charlton Heston were allowed to promenade dramatically
the regular steps to the tarmac (ah, those days before
Anyhoo, this one is better experienced than described. If nothing else,
it's fun to spot all the "Airplane" parody fodder.
