Airplane! / Zero Hour!

Did you know that the 1980 comedy film Airplane! is largely based on the 1957 drama Zero Hour!?

Airplane! uses the same basic situation as Zero Hour and plays some of the serious old dialogue for laughs. Just like Airplane! has a pro athlete co-pilot (Kareem Abdul Jabbar), Zero Hour has Elroy “Crazylegs” Hirsch. Zero Hour! is on DVD and Airplane! is on DVD and Blu-ray.
