"Nightmare at 20,000 Feet" was the sequence at the end of the movie with John Lithgow as a plane passenger who can't convince anyone that a monster is eating the wing. William Shatner played the part in the original TV version.

The sequence with Vic Morrow was the one about the bigot who "leaps" in and out of various victims of racial prejudice. I believe it was original to the movie, not based on a previous TV episode.
