Airplane! 40th Anniversary

at Castro Theatre (3pm)
SF Sketchfest presents the 40th anniversary of "Airplane!" on the big screen with a special conversation with the writing and directing team of Jim Abrahams and the Zucker brothers, David and Jerry, who were also responsible for comedy classics "The Naked Gun," "Kentucky Fried Movie," "Top Secret" and "Police Squad!" Joining the team onstage will be their leading man Robert Hays ("Ted Striker") and leading lady Julie Hagerty ("Elaine Dickinson") for an afternoon of funny stories and audience Q&A. "Airplane!," one of the most beloved comedy films of all time, was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy, in 1980 and is number ten on AFI's "100 Years...100 Laughs" list. Fasten your seatbelts for the film that brought us Ted Striker's "drinking problem," Otto Pilot, jive-talking Barbara Billingsley, a feud over the uses of the red zone and the white zone, and the reinvention of the wonderful Leslie Nielsen as a comedy superstar. Surely you will have a great time. And don't call me Shirley.
