TRIVIA

The Atari 2600 game Basketball made a brief cameo in the movie Airplane (1980). It occurs about 1:13:15 into the movie... right after Johnny makes comments about how awful the dress & shoes are and makes the captain's wife cry. The brief clip shows two air traffic controllers playing basketball on their round radar screen.
