In the latest installment of "What to Watch", IMDb's TV Editor Melanie McFarland chats with "Mad Men" stars Jon Hamm, January Jones, John Slattery, and series creator Matthew Weiner about the drama's extraordinary legacy, as AMC prepares to air its final seven episodes.
This kind of scheme was largely used in the late sixties and seventies, especially with the AIRPORT series for the big screen; and not only, how many TVMs were talking about disappearance of airliners, or problems the crew and passengers had to deal with? How many? Lots of them. This tale is of course speaking of an airplane who suddenly disappears from the radar screen. And around this, the audience is given an accurate study of several people involved with the passengers or crew of the flight. One scene very shocking, although no spectacular: the one in which the airline executive shows his wrath because of the possible loss, because of the plane disappearance, of a fish shipment destined to restaurants...No matter the passengers. No comment. Interesting drama yarn, perfect for TV, especially without really suspense or climax as we can find for large screen audiences. Deserves to be discovered again, and don't forget this was a direct, live show back in the late fifties. A real performance. Worth watching.
