    When I saw the headline, I assumed it was a different George Kennedy – I thought he had been dead for a long time : /

    Red Leary in Thunderbolt & Lightfoot was a great character in a great film :)

    Red Leary (George Kennedy): – Remember what I said. John and me go back a long way. But you don’t mean nothin’ to me, understand? Nothin’!

    Lightfoot (Jeff Bridges): – What’d you try and kill him for then?

    Red Leary (George Kennedy): – Because we were friends.

    RIP George, thanks for the moments! :)

    As Joe Patroni in Airport…. (roughly)
    “The 707 is a helluva tough plane. Take off the wings and you could use it as a tank.”
    Said 707 had been sold to the moviemakers by…. Aer Lingus.

        Thanks, but I got it the wrong way round. Aer Lingus acquired it AFTER the moviemaking, and it became EI-ASO. Had a chequered career, several operators and was destroyed in a crash at Sao Paolo in 1989, working freight.
