Nominated for 10 Academy Awards® including Best Picture, this engaging and glitzy drama spawned a new film genre–the disaster movie. In 12 harrowing hours at a major Midwestern airport, airport manager Mel Bakersfield must deal with a powerful blizzard, a blocked runway, a failing marriage, and a mentally disturbed passenger carrying a bomb. This blockbuster has everything an audience could want–suspense, romance, drama, and comedy–all spread across a vast canvas.
