In the days before the Super Bowl being the biggest event there is, Superdome was an ABC Monday Night Movie that was used to promote Super Bowl XII. It’s also known as The Super Bowl Story and Countdown to the Super Bowl.
Directed by Jerry Jameson (Airport ’77, The Bat People), this is one of those disaster-style big cast movies, in which the Cougars — I guess the NFL wouldn’t let any of their teams be in the movie — are all in trouble. There are marital issues for Ken Howard, bad business decisions by Tom Selleck, as well as an assassin! And Michael Pataki!
Man, I love any movie that features Dick Butkus and Bubba Smith, much less David Janssen and Donna Mils. It’s not great, but you know, you could do worst. And you have.
You can get this from Kino Lorber.
