Hollywood: Paramount Pictures, 1978. Draft script for the 1980 film.
The first major studio effort by the famed Zucker brothers, following their rather inspired patchwork comedy, "Kentucky Fried Movie" (1977). With "Airplane!" the brothers brought their brand of silly, unhinged comedy out of the midnight movie and into the mainstream, the beginning of a 10-year run that would peak with "The Naked Gun" in 1988.
Shot on location in Malibu.
