4 Shots From 4 Films: Special Jack Smight Edition


4 (or more) Shots From 4 (or more) Films is just what it says it is, 4 (or more) shots from 4 (or more) of our favorite films. As opposed to the reviews and recaps that we usually post, 4 (or more) Shots From 4 (or more) Films lets the visuals do the talking.

Though the name Jack Smight might not be a familiar one in the way the name of some directors are, this filmmaker was responsible for some of the most “fun” movies of the 60s and 70s.  He was born 96 years ago, on this date, in Minnesota and he passed away in 2003.  In between that time, he directed television shows, movies, and he was responsible for popularizing the deathless phrase, “The stewardess is flying the plane?”

In honor of Jack Smight, here are….
