Robert Hays played the pilot on the Airplane movies. When I saw him walk up to the ticket line at a recent play opening, I knew I recognized him, but couldn't place how until someone jogged my memory.
Although I vaguely remember watching Airplane, I was quite young at the time and don't remember much of it. I need to watch it again and see what I was missing. Robert was super cool to all the fans asking for photos and autographs. He was exactly how celebs should be to fans.
