George Kennedy certainly would - and as the only actor to appear in every film in the series, he's the perfect choice for tonight's very special...
Saturday Night at the Movies Dusk 'til Dawn Show:
The Airport Franchise!
First up - one video clip of all four trailers....
And then we'll get in the posters:
Airport was the movie that touched off the disaster movie craze in 1970, and became the only disaster franchise - the only other disaster flick to even make it to a second entry was 1972's The Poseidon Adventure with Beyond the Poseidon Adventure in 1979. The other nice thing about the four Airport movies is that they span almost the entire 10 years the genre originally lasted - the final film's release in August 1979 putting it just six months ahead of the movie that ended the disaster run - the aptly titled When Time Ran Out in March 1980.
And for this quartet - I have all four movies in a swell "Universal Studios' Franchise Collection" box set - and you could join me to watch the all star casts swing from movie stars to TV actors across the four flicks at any time - even this very evening - if you would care to fly over to my place.
And until the next post, you Can Poke Me With A Fork, Cause I Am Outta Here!
