It’s an ordinary night at an ordinary airport aside from a blizzard, a bomber, an elderly stowaway (Academy Award winner Helen Hayes), and interpersonal drama galore—there’s an affair between married pilot Dean Martin and stewardess Jacqueline Bisset, while the airport’s manager Burt Lancaster romances coworker Jean Seberg. Based on Arthur Hailey’s best-selling novel, this box-office smash was a warm-up for a genre that loomed large in the following decade.
