Songbird Salutes the 70's

OMG Airport 1975 was on TV last week.

"The stewardess is flying the plane!"

how absurd.  yet they made it work.  and made a real nail biter.

and the cast list was amazing.  Charleton Heston, Efram Zimbalist Jr., George Kennedy, Gloria Swanson,  Helen Reddy, Linda Blair, Sid Caesar, Myrna Loy, :Larry Storch, Norman Fell, Karen Black, Jerry Stiller, Erik Estrada, Sharon Gless  -- some famous, some rising stars, a few on their way down ...

and they created somethng that was so easily parodied -- with great success -- in Airplane.
