Bad Decisions: Airport ‘79





Imagine you’re making a film in which a comical scene depicts a woman in a wet blouse. Another scene shows a woman pretending to be blind so she can sneak her purse sized dog onto the airplane. Your film stars an in her prime Charo and an elderly Martha Raye, so of course you’d put Charo in the wet blouse and Martha Raye would be the lady with the dog, right? 

Not if you’re making Airport ‘79. (Don’t say we didn’t warn you!)

Charo is shown for a few minutes trying to smuggle in a dog...


And the geriatric Martha Raye gets the wet blouse...
