Lee Grant Boozes Airport ’77 Into Must See Status

Airport ’77: Underwater! may not have Karen Black among its star-studded cast, but do you know what it does have? Yes, Jimmy Stewart’s private island. Okay, yeah, that blind pianist. And you’re right, Olivia de Havilland. Yes! Geez, there is that complicated and ultimately arbitrary art heist. But it also has Lee Grant.

In addition to Lee Grant, there are a few other reasons why you should watch Airport ’77: The Poseidon Saga on Netflix streaming before it disappears July 1. Here’s one!

    I often it was quite mean spirited in the way they killed her off. The plane was right underneath the surface when the balloon broke. The captain reduce the pressure so as the plane flooded. She drowned just as the captain order more air pressure into the balloon. As every one else rejoiced. the camera still have to do one last shot of her face down in the water just to rub it in. Wonder if Lee Grant did that floating shot herself.
