This was a great post. I had no idea that Airplane! was based off of an older film, and it's one of my favorite movies.

I hope you don't mind, but I linked to this article on my own blog. Very interesting stuff!


I saw an interview with the Zuckers and they said that when they first saw this, they wondered why the kid didn't say something like, "Say, aren't you Crazylegs Hirsch?" Why didn't anyone in the film recognize him? That was the origin of the segment in Airplane! where the kid recognizes Kareem Abdul Jabar.

Excellent post! As an Airplane! fan, it was eerie watching that clip. Is it just me, or is that cockpit bigger than most hotel rooms? That, and at one point they cut to a shot of the altimeter during one of the turbulence scenes...."oh no, we're climbing!"
