Saturday afternoon movie

After a lovely dog walk I’m sitting enjoying the breeze through the open windows, and while flicking the channels on a lazy Saturday afternoon we came across Airport (1970) showing on TCM.

It’s amazing that this movie is 45 years old, but it’s held up well and it’s awesome to look at the technology- rotary phones and dial radios. This is the one that started the whole disaster genre and was what Airplane! was mostly based on.

George Kennedy was in all the Airport movies and is awesome in this as he drives a stuck 707 out of the snow with a cigar clenched in his teeth!

What fun 🙂
