"Oh, stewardess, I speak Jive..." - Barbara Billingsley

Oops, sorry, wrong movie :)

My mom and I loved reading “best-sellers” when I was in high school and one of them that she told me to read was Airport, written by Arthur Hailey, which we both loved.  By the time the movie was ready (although I think it was already planned when the book came out) I was out of the country, living in Brasil as a missionary. I went with a co-worker to see it when it was released there, mid-1970 and this one was in the Brazilian theaters almost as soon as it was in the US. All of the movies from the US that we saw there had on-screen captions so we could hear them in English. I think I saw it at least 2-3 times in big ornate movie theaters there, much nicer theaters than the ones in my hometown.
I was at the local city library here last month and found a DVD of this movie which I don’t think I’d seen since the earliest days of VHS tapes—I may have even bought one. I took it home, watched on my 40inch TV and sadly ,while it was fun to watch, it was very dated and kind of silly. I will say that the part where we’re waiting for the bomb is still pretty suspenseful. And I guess due to the age of the movie, 48 years old this year, most of the major cast members are long gone, including my favorite, Barbara Hale, who played Dean Martin’s wife.

Loved this movie. Especially liked the character "Joe Patroni". George Kennedy did a great job.

I like watching this moving for the simple reason that parts of it were filmed at the Minneapolis-St. Paul airport.  I remember as a child going to that airport with my grandfather just to watch planes land and takeoff.  There was an outside area set aside just for viewing these events.  It was interesting and amazing to watch, especially at night.
