THE CONCORDE: AIRPORT '79 (1979). This was on the same disc as AIRPORT '77 and checked it out yesterday to see if it's as awful as it supposed to be. It's quite bad with such a flabby script that has more of a sleazy air to it (especially in scenes involving George Kennedy) than previous installments. As per the rest, the cast is the reason to watch it, but too much "Comic" relief from Jimmie Walker, Martha Raye. John Davidson and Charo and endless repeats of the same scene wear thin quick. And, for the life of Me, can't picture Eddie Albert (GREEN ACRES) and Sybil Danning) as Husband and Wife!

After lousy opening, it was billed as a Comedy, because it's just too silly and can't be taken seriously. Almost a precursor of 1980's AIRPLANE! **

PRIVATE LESSONS (1981). Probably the GrandDaddy of Teen Sex comedies so prevalent in the 80's. Plot involving extortion etc is too complex for this sort of film and Eric Brown in his first film develops his normal style; Wide eyes and a goofy grin. Still, He's a Lucky SOB to be around a naked Sylvia Kristel and was even luckier a few years later to be in a similar situation with Sybil Danning in THEY'RE LAYING WITH FIRE. **

WITNESS (1985). While the premise has been done to Death; two people from different cultures fall in love- this is a pretty solid, well done film. A recently widowed Amish mother is between trains when her Son witnesses the homicide of an Undercover Policeman and Tough Cop Harrison Ford (Aces!) takes the case only to find out there's more to it and the lives of his charges are in serious danger.
Haven't watched this years and finds it still holds up very well. The chemistry between HF and lovely Kelly McGillis is a slow burn; The dance in the Barn definitely shows an attraction>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
>>>>>>>>>SPOILER>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> >> and the scene where a bathing Kelly exchanges stares with Harrison is supremely erotic. ****

THE LONG RIDERS (1980). This saga of the James-Younger gang is wonderful in the Production values, but it takes awhile for the story to pick up. Once it finds its footing, it's pretty good and quite violent as well-especially in the Northfield MN raid...Sam Peckinpah would have been proud. Main selling point for TLR was it featured Real Life Brothers playing Brothers in the story, such as The Keach's (James and Stacy), The Carradine's (David, Keith and Robert), The Quaid's (Randy and a very young Dennis) and The Guest's (Nichlas and Christopher). ***
