Fly Me is a 1973 United States-Filipino film about the adventures of three flight attendants.

Plot[edit]

Three young flight attendants fly from Los Angeles to Hong Kong. Toby's mother has followed her on the plane and Toby tries to lose her so she can romance a doctor, David. Andrea's lover Donald has gone missing. Shelley is smuggling drugs and is kidnapped by a white slave ring.

Cast[edit]

Production[edit]

The film contains some kung fu scenes shot by Jonathan Demme and Joe Dante worked on the movie as a dialogue director.[1]

Corman did not want the film to seem like it was done in the Philippines so he had Curtis Hanson shoot an opening sequence in Los Angeles where Pat Anderson jumped in a taxi cab driven by Dick Miller.[2]

Reception[edit]

Roger Corman says the film was successful, which he attributed in part to its strong women's lib stance.[3]
