“They don’t call them emergencies anymore. They call them Patronis.”
-Joe Patroni (George Kennedy), Airport (1970)
I LOVE this flick, and George Kennedy was THE star of it (imho)…lol
(the way he explains an explosive decompression is FANTASTIC!)
I FIRST saw AIRPORT in a REAL THEATER…with a HUGE, honking 40 ft.screen (just ONE screen, too)
The movie changed from the novel somewhat (also good reading), but it’s a very good movie, and worth seeing what “was to come” in our world…even if it took a bit longer to occur.
Long live Patroni!!
Have a good weekend and roll safe out there.
Patroni’s my favorite character as well. George Kennedy rocks. Sadly, I never got to see this one on the big screen.
