I enjoyed a wonderful double bill last night at the Egyptian Theatre, comprised of the first two films in the AIRPORT franchise, AIRPORT (1970) and AIRPORT 1975 (1974).
I originally reviewed AIRPORT in June 2010 and AIRPORT 1975 in May 2010.
I highly recommend that AIRPORT fans see these films on a big screen if the opportunity presents itself! I think I smiled for most of the evening. Pure movie fun.
FLYING ON FILM: A CENTURY OF AVIATION IN THE MOVIES, 1912-2012. Given how much I enjoy aviation films, I'm looking forward to reading the book.
Carlson also introduced the films, including mentioning the fun trivia that the pilots of AIRPORT 1975, Efrem Zimbalist Jr. and Dana Andrews, essentially flipped the roles they had played 15 years earlier in THE CROWDED SKY (1960).
I've had a lot of wonderful experiences at the movies recently, with more to come in the near future!
