sat down and had lunch
and he told us about...
this whole speech about loyalty,
how we should be loyal
to the studio that brought us,
and told us about... who was the guy
at MGM who was convicted?
Beagleman - he told a story about
David Beagleman, how he was disloyal.
And it reminded me of "Kentucky Fried
Movie" because in that movie...
This was one of those scenes...
Jerry pouring gasoline on himself.
I'm just hanging myself...
Oh, God... and then
I remember in third grade...
And you won't hear the punchline.
- Tell the punchline.
- Yeah, right!
They'll have to read my book.
To hear the punchline
write to David Zucker...
- care of...
- Paramount Pictures...
I don't work there any more.
This is a scene we just added
because they told us
you had to have a point
at the end of the second act
that the hero chickens out and then
somebody talks him into going back.
And so we said "OK, we'll do that."
- We were malleable.
- We said "All right."
It's a stiff thing
but I guess you gotta do it.
I think this is... this is coming up
with Stack, the John Byner imitation.
He was good at doing that.
Jerry showed Robert Stack
how to do that.
Most of these names are people
we went to high school with.
They all sued later.
This is a personal favourite.
"Try not to worry."
Needless to say this picture only had
one airplane sale in the whole world,
it's Aero Mexico, actually brought
this picture to run on...
on an airplane,
no other airline ever bought it.
They did, huh?
- Oh, yeah...
- You know what's coming up here.
It had to happen sooner or later.
Back in 1980 that was bad.
The first joke they cut.
We opened up
on the 4th of July weekend.
That's what...
In 700 theatres,
which was a lot of theatres.
- July 4th weekend?
- Yeah, July 2nd.
- 700 theatres?
- A lot of theatres.
In those days.
And it broke house records.
In fact, the first two days covered
the cost of making the picture.
The first two days of exhibition.
- So they were happy?
- Yeah.
Blewdhorn was especially happy.
I remember, he told us about loyalty.
There used to be an Air Poland scene
in there
with Jose Feliciano
who was blind and with his guide dog.
Flying Air Poland,
and when that came out there was...
We got a call
from the Complaints...
Anti-Defamation League.
But subsequently I've seen Ray
Charles flying an airplane in a film.
This got applause.
'Cause it was the end
of disco then.
Heard any good jokes lately?
Not recently.
Not for the last half hour.
OK, guy walks into a...
If this picture was any longer
there'd be complete silence.
We're gonna leave a space here for
you to supply your own commentary.
Did you go out with her?
Jerry, who are you talking to?
It was just to the room.
This was... this was on the set
we made this up.
Guys, I have a massage scheduled
so I gotta...
You can go away and come back,
nobody'll know.
The first time my kids saw this movie
they just sat and watched it,
and they were just into the drama,
they didn't know it was a comedy.
Just "what's gonna happen?
Will it get down? Will they be OK?"
That's Jim doing the dog's voice.
They actually let us shoot at LAX,
we got to go out on the runway.
They don't do that any more.
Not after this picture.
Were they unhappy with us?
Not you personally,
just... the film.
- They were?
- I don't think so.
They were very nice.
I think it's probably
very difficult to do that today.
We were shooting
out on Aviation Boulevard.
Yeah.
A lot of these shots.
We were actually
on the runway at LAX.
That's right.
There was no such thing
as second unit.
Yeah, on this one, yeah...
We did everything.
I looked through the cost report
and there's a thing for special
shooting units, they spent $15,000...
So there must have been something.
It might have been the backgrounds.
Tell them how you did that.
Oh, yeah, we hung Lloyd upside down
and turned the camera upside down.
And Lloyd was
! !
