We could discuss this early look at modern airline terrorism and how it reflects America's naïveté about things to come. We might argue that the cold-blooded sexpot Angie Dickinson plays is a preview of the character she later played in The Killers. We could debate the role of televised "news" as it feeds both paranoia and terrorism in today's world. We might ponder Neville Brand's knife-wielding speed-freak character as early Meth Man.
Nahhhhh. . .
We'll just look at the pretty pictures.
