I can't believe I've not picked this film before now! Today would be actor Lloyd Bridges' 100th birthday and he started in a whole host of comedy classics (and is also the father of actors Jeff and Beau). One film in which he plays a pivotal role is Airplane!, a film from 1980 that spoofs the melodramatic disaster movies of the previous decade. The jokes come thick and fast and it may take repeat viewings to see them all!
The film also stars Robert Hays, Julie Hagerty, Leslie Nielsen and Peter Graves. A must for comedy fans everywhere.
