30th Anniversary of Airplane!

Tomorrow is the 30th anniversary of one of my favorite movies of all time, Airplane! To celebrate, watch the classic clip above. When we were kids, my brother and I memorized the dialogue in this scene (every scene, actually) and would occasionally perform it. For our parents. Below is a delightful video featuring the film's creators and the two actors reminiscing about the jive talk bit. For more, please see "Oh Stewardess, I speak jive!"

New York Times feature about the film's anniversary: "Surely it's 30 (Don't Call Me Shirley!)"
