Who is the crazy skyjacker?

By RICHARD GLATZER
Ads for Mark of the Devil, a
recent West German sado-film,
state that, "Due to the horri-
fying scenes, no one (will be)
admitted without a "distress
bag" (available from the box
office)." Skyjacked's distrib-
utors might have considered us-
ing a similar gimmick. Not for
the same reasons - no horri-
fying scenes here. Rather, Sky-
jacked's sole innovation - a
constantly roving, zooming,
floating, tilting camera (cour-
tesy of Harry Stradling Jr.) -
induces, as intended, a slight
sense of mal de lair. Talk about
movie realism ...
Skyjacked's realism, however,
never extends beyond this mild
sense of air sickness. The
film's characters are all cliches,
recycled but clearly recogniz-
able. P i 1ot Henry O'Hara
(Charlton Hston) is the most
central and most trite figr:
fearless and courageous, nerves
of steel, sinews of iron, etc., etc.
He doesn't bat an eye when he
is told of the writing on a bath-
room mirror ordering him to
either change course to An-
chorage or see his plane explod-
ed.. He immediately makes the
right decision. He avoids colli-
sion with an unspotted small
aircraft. He miraculously guides
his plane through a horrible
storm and into the Anchorage
airport.
And in the end, after a slight
detour to Moscow, he defeats
his insane opponent and saves
every last passenger on his ve-
hicle, not to mention U.S-So-
viet relations. As an admirer

remarks early in the film, "That
man doesn't fool around."
Other characters are no more
real, but are simply on screen
less often. Angela Thatcher
(vette Mimieux) has had an
affair with O'Hara, but to try-
ing to remain faithful to her
present lover, a co-pilot on the
very same flight. Arne Lind-
ner (Walter Pidgeon) is an
honest, observant, intelligent
senator on his way to meet the
president. His son Peter (Ni-
cholsa Hammond) is a slick
smiling dude who digs on gro-
zy hipster Elly Brewster (Susan
Dey). Mr. and Mrs. Shaw
(Jeanne Crain and Ross Elliott)
are a middle-aged couple, mov-
ing to Minneapolis, whose mar-
riage seems to be somewhat
shaky (though only temporar-
ly),
Jerome K. Weber (James
Brolin) is a slightly wild-eyed
young man on leave from the
service to see his sister's wed-
ding. Mrs. Hrriett Stevens
(Mariette Hartley) is a happily
pregnant woman, forced to put
her knowledge of natural child-
birth into practice when baby
wants out prematurely.
The film's prime concern,
though, is not this cast of fas-
cinating individuals, but its
plot. Which passenger is the in-
sane hijacker? Will O'Hara land
safely at Anchorage? Will the
Russian officials shoot down
the plane once it enters Rus-
sian territory? How will the in-
sane villain react to the Rus-
sians? All questions designed to
keep us on the edge of our
seats.

-Until recently Mme. Ky's
prime supplier was an "overseas
Chinese racketeer" named Hu
Tim Heng, who used his posi-
tion as the silent partner in
the Vietntiane Pepsi Cola bot-
tling plant as a cover to import
a chemical necessary for the
manufacture of heroin, McCoy
testified.
-Heng bought raw opium and
morphine from Gen. Ouane Rat-
tikone, former chief of staff of
the Royal Laotian Army.

Questions whose answers I
found both obvious and nin-
teresting. The solution to the
mystery of the hijacker's Iden-
tity is evident from the first.
And once revealed, the bomb-
toting zany is too laughable to
be particularly frightening,
The film's ads order me not
to reveal who the lunatic is
("he is a genuine killer!") let it
suffice to say that he is a pop-
eyed crazy in the Anthony Per-
kins tradition, and that he is
often ridiculous.
Add to this John Guillermin's
thoroughly suspenseless, lack-
luster direction, replete with ly-
rical flashbacks and flat post
card shots of planes amidst
clouds, and you get a melo-
drama with the excitement and
the look of a second-rate air-
line commercial.

-Gen. Rattikone admitted,
McCoy said, that he controlled
opium traffic in northwestern
Laos since 1962 and controlled
that country's largest heroin
laboratory producing a high-
grade drug for the GI market in
South Vietnam.
-Most of the opium traffic in
northeastern Laos is controlled
by Gen. Vang Pao.
-The government of Thailand
allows Burmese rebels, National-
