Abstract: Hollywood has shown an unending affection for the airplane for nearly one hundred years. From fantasy, to war, to salvation, to heroism, to romance, to adventure, airplanes have been and continue to be a powerful symbol in American film. Two intertwined themes based on flight are menace and hope, and the tension between them has successfully driven many flying films. This may explain why film has featured the airplane as the archetypal machine of the twentieth century, just as, according to Leo Marx in The Machine in the Garden, the locomotive served as the archetypal machine in American literature of the nineteenth century. Specifically, this dissertation will focus on how cargo planes, bomber aircraft, commercial airliners, and all those aboard have been portrayed in film from 1950-2004. This is chapter 7 of the dissertation. Addendum : In addition to the text of chapter 7 from my 2004 dissertation, this submission also contains added material from airplane films that have appeared since then and feature disturbed or disturbing passengers. Of particular note is the character played by Jodie Foster in Flightplan (2005).
