Video: Earthquake in New York? This 1972 TV Movie Imagined It

August 23, 2011

The moment today’s DC area earthquake shook Brooklyn Heights, we thought about the corny and wonderful 1972 made for TV movie Short Walk to Daylight.

It starred a pre-Mr. Streisand James Brolin as NYPD officer Tom Phelan who leads a rag tag crew of Noo Yawkers through subway tunnels after a devastating shaker hits the Big Apple.  The cast is a regular potpourri of great 70s character actors including James McEachin and Abbey Lincoln.

At about 1:45 in the attached video, hear Brolin and his hammy NYC accent utter the classic lane, “An OITHQUAKE…. in Noooo Yawk?!”
