Millennium is a 1989 film directed by Michael Anderson and starring Kris Kristofferson, Cheryl Ladd, Robert Joy, Brent Carver, Al Waxman and Daniel J. Travanti. The original music score was composed by Eric N. Robertson. The film was marketed with the tagline “The people aboard Flight 35 are about to land 1,000 years from where they planned to.”
Millennium is based on the 1977 short story “Air Raid” by John Varley. Varley started work on a screenplay based on that short story in 1979, and later released the expanded story in book-length form in 1983, titled Millennium. After a lot of work and four different directors, a film was finally released in 1989.
The movie begins in the cockpit of a U.S. passenger airliner, shortly before they are impacted from above by another airliner on a landing approach. The pilot handles the airplane as well as he can while the copilot goes back to check on the passenger cabin. He comes back in the cockpit screaming, “They’re all dead and burned!”
Cheryl Ladd was born in Huron, South Dakota, Beadle County
