    Zero Hour! (1957)

    The makers of "Airplane!" actually bought the rights to "Zero Hour!" to remake it as a comedy. Much of "Airplane!" is similar to "Zero Hour!", including using the same dialogue. I've watched "Zero Hour!" and laughed the whole time because I could see its influence. For anyone who hasn't seen the comedy version, it's an interesting melodrama; otherwise, it's hysterically funny~from bad food to the man's !

    Some scenes parodied these:

    Airport

    The Godfather

    Flight Into Danger

    Saturday Night Fever

    From Here to Eternity

    I haven't watched it for a long time, so I don't recall it in detail. I remember them making references to other films, including "Spartacus", but the ones above are the only parodied ones I can think of. Later parodies started throwing in "everything but the kitchen sink", as they say.
