Did you know of the day: 'Airplane!' is a remake of the movie 'Zero Hour!'

Thursday, July 22, 2010

Here's a scene-for-scene comparison:

From Wikipedia:
Jerry Zucker, Jim Abrahams, and David Zucker (collectively known as ZAZ) wrote Airplane! while they were performing with the Kentucky Fried Theatre, a successful small theatre they had founded in 1971. The ZAZ came to the idea of spoofing airplane films when they accidentally taped the 1957 film Zero Hour!, while they were looking for commercials to spoof. Abrahams later described Zero Hour! as "... the serious version of Airplane!". It was the first film script they wrote, and was originally called The Late Show.

they also bought the rights of the film (Zero Hour) so that they could wholesale copy scenes, camera angles, lines, etc from it.
