Actors Martin Milner, 'Cameron Mitchell' and 'Eric Olsen' all starred in Irwin Allen's short-lived Swiss Family Robinson (1975) series, which was off-the-air earlier in 1976. This TV-movie also served as the pilot to a series about helicopter pilots. The series was scrapped early in the planning stages. See more »
Earl Bellamy directed this TV movie produced by Irwin Allen that stars Robert Culp as a helicopter pilot who becomes involved in the plight of the town of Brownsville, which is in a state of alarm because heavy rains have caused the nearby dam to overflow, and threaten to destroy it all together. Martin Milner plays the man trying to warn the stubborn mayor(played by Richard Basehart) about the threat, but he doesn't want to hear it, which will lead to disaster for all... Cameron Mitchel, Carol Lynley, Barbara Hershey and Teresa Wright costar. Disappointing film is a big build-up to very little, and contains a talky story that generates little interest, though the good cast tries.
