John Cacavas: Airport 1975

Great cover art from the golden age of disaster films. The film starred Charlton Heston, George Kennedy, Efrem Zimbalist, Jr., Gloria Swanson (as herself, advocating against sugar), Helen Reddy, Linda Blair, Myrna Loy, Erik Estrada, Dana Andrews, and, of course, Karen Black as the head stewardess. Composer John Cacavas is mostly known for his television scores (Kojak, Hawaii Five-0). He also wrote the score for the next Airport sequel, Airport ’77.
