I've just seen the trailer for the remake of "Flight of the Phoenix." Whatever screenwriter came up with the script ought to be lined up against a wall and shot, numerous times. I originally wondered how anyone could possibly remake this show, now I know. It _CAN'T_ be remade.
I bet that if you wrapped Jimmy Stewart's corpse in copper wire and suspended him over a magnet, with the amount of RPM's he's putting out by spinning in his grave he'd be able to power the entire western hemisphere for at least a century.
