OK, the other is Airport 1975. Not a great movie from a critical perspective, but it’s relentlessly entertaining. You gave the only truly committed performance in the film. The rest of the all-star cast seemed indifferent to the impending disaster.
That’s exactly what happened. We were shooting the film and the director, Jack Smight, asked me to watch the rushes. It was the scene with the hole in the plane. I saw Sid Caesar doing marvelous jokes and Myrna Loy being charming, but no one seemed to have any sense of danger at all. Even Charlton Heston thought it was kind of a joke. I realized that if I didn’t care that the plane got over the mountain, no one in the audience would. I actually learned to fly a plane from our technical adviser, but they shot me from the chin up, so you couldn’t see my brilliant skill. But you’re right, I had to tear my heart out or it wouldn’t have thrust. I thank you for seeing that.
Finally, tell our readers why they should see The Blue Tooth Virgin.
Three reasons: (a) you won’t forget it, (b) you’ll have a great time following the twists and turns, smiling and laughing and being entranced, and (c) you can talk for the next month about the questions raised in the movie.
