As "Cagney & Lacey" (1982-88), Gless and co-star Tyne Daly broke barriers as the first female dramatic leads on television, playing a pair of New York City police detectives. Gless picked up two Emmys and a Golden Globe for her portrayal of the working-class Christine Cagney, who struggled with alcoholism and other complex issues on screen. Gless won another Golden Globe for her work as the title character in the courtroom drama "The Trials of Rosie O'Neill" (1990-92).
Later in her career, Gless enjoyed successful runs on "Queer as Folk" (2000-05), "Nip/Tuck" (2008-09) and "Burn Notice" (2007-), the latter earning her another Emmy nod in 2010.
The first Airport film focuses on a 12-hour period at a major airport where manager Mel Bakersfeld (Burt Lancaster) must deal with a powerful blizzard, a blocked runway and a mentally disabled passenger (Van Heflin) carrying a bomb. The sequel features Charlton Heston as Alan Murdock, an air traffic controller who tries to save a doomed 747 after the pilot of a private plane (Dana Andrews) has a heart attack and crashes into the 747's cockpit.
