Airport (1970, Burt Lancaster, Dean Martin)



This big-screen adaptation of Arthur Haley’s best-seller rises above Seventies kitsch thanks to Burt Lancaster’s typically measured performance as Mel Bakersfeld, manager of a small Midwestern airport, who has to balance a volatile home life with a snowstorm, a passenger carrying a bomb and a plane stuck in the mud.
