Larry Mantle talks with Elliot Hester, a flight attendant for 16 years with a major airline, about his new book, Plane Insanity (St. Martin's Press), that chronicles the misadventures of both passengers and flight crews in a collection of scathingly funny stories about bad trips, peculiar co-workers, first-class stowaways and outrageous in-flight behavior.
Host Larry Mantle together with critics F.X. Feeney of the L.A. Weekly and Henry Sheehan of the Orange County Register discuss the week's latest film and video releases. This week's selections include: Black Hawk Down, The Shipping News, What Time Is It There?, and Italian for Beginners. The critics also discuss American Cinematheque's Stanley Kubrick double feature to take place on Friday, January 18, 7:30 PM at the Egyptian Theatre. F.X. Feeney is scheduled to speak.
