Even before reading the above replies, I would have thought United. Because if you observe the cheat line, it is orange/red and goes all the way from the front to the rear. Can't be Continental because at that time the Continental livery consisted of a gold tail. And it's in Denver, so I would not be surprised if it's United.
You can spot on the other side of the terminal, a TWA 727, a Western 737 and a Continental DC-10. Parked to the United 727 in question to this thread, you can also spot a Braniff 727 easily seen from far because of its fancy Calder livery. You could spot that airplane right away even without binoculars. And yes there are a couple DC-8s in addition to the 727s at United. If you look carefully, there is a 727 still painted in the original United livery from the 60s.
At that time who had a hub in Denver? United or Continental? It looks like it's United according to what I see in the picture but I know Continental also had a hub in Denver.

I am 99 percent sure it is a UA aircraft. If you look closely every other aircraft (with exception of the BN 727) on the concourse appears to belong to UA. The 727 that is second from the right appears to be a UA aircraft in the previous (pre tulip) livery.
