| Oldie but a goodie !
I first saw this movie way back in the eighties, and because there are few cable car disaster movies I remember it quite well. I actually taped it in the late 90's when it was on TV for old times sake, and I still have it somewhere! All the action takes place on the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway (they even have their own website - check it out!). some of the effects are typical '70's', but its an OK film all in all. Some of the exterior shots are so obviously done in a studio (climbing up the gooseneck of the cable car etc) but then again some of the shots of the car near the end in its 'out of control' mode are very clever and sure get the adrenaline pumping - excellent. A remake could be easily done on this theme, as a lot of people would be genuinely scared if trapped and hanging in the mid-air. I know I would!
