The entertainingly silly AIRPORT films were ripe for a spoof and Zucker-Abrahams-Zucker's send-up, AIRPLANE!, was such a giggle-inducing delight that it became a bigger classic than the films by which it was inspired. Widely considered one of the 10 greatest comedies ever produced, AIRPLANE! rapid-fires off jokes and gags like a machine gun with nearly all of them hitting their mark. And, Zucker-Abrahams-Zucker will be releasing a new book, SURELY YOU CAN'T BE SERIOUS, a wildly entertaining deep-dive into the making of AIRPLANE! on October 2 that's a must-read for all film lovers.
