KELLY PRESTON GUESTS ON BLUE THUNDER

Kelly Preston on BLUE THUNDER
BLUE THUNDER was a popular 1983 film starring Roy Scheider as a maverick cop piloting a really neat looking supped-up military helicopter.

A year later it turned into an entertaining, short-lived television series where guest stars including Cult Film Freak's favorite beauty, KELLY PRESTON...

James Farentino resembles Roy Scheider and he even mirrors some of his expressions. The character, Murphy, is a lady's man flirting with all things female and even landing a few dates. But, much like James Bond, he often gets backstabbed by double-agent vixens.

Dana Carvey takes the Daniel Stern co-pilot/computer programmer role and you can see his potential as a future SNL alumni, doing James Stewart or John Wayne imitations whilst throwing a sporadic joke to alleviate the tension. Although he's replaced by a female co-pilot in the final episode.
Kelly Preston stealthily escapes the villain's lair
While Blue Thunder takes on antagonistic airplanes or copters in the sky, the Ground Thunder group, played by ex football giants Bubby Smith and Dick Butkus, drives a truck and cleans up each mess.

Bubba and Butkus will often go undercover. The two big lugs not only provide hilarious moments, they beat up anyone on or off their path. 
Kelly Preston serves up some sexy tennis
Now to the point at hand: One particular episode, THE LONG FLIGHT, features the gorgeous Kelly Preston as the lovely tennis savvy daughter of the group’s often grouchy captain, played by Sandy McPeak. She's kidnapped and held hostage, and manages to escape several times.

FLIGHT co-stars Paul Koslo as a sinister thug working for kingpin Gregory Sierra. It's not the best episode, but Kelly Preston, as you can see by the photos, makes it truly worthwhile.
