All star cast always catch my eye. Irving Allen is mere efectism bur has good collaborators as Sterling Silliphant who knows how to tale in the limits put by Allen.

The all-star disaster epics of the 1970s were a strange little time capsule, as if the ethical quagmires and pervasive paranoia of the era could only be expressed in blockbusters that trapped a bunch of people in an isolated spot and made sure to shockingly kill off several of the big names every so often. The super-producer of these films was Irwin Allen, and fresh off of throwing a group of star... read more

Description: One hundred and thirty stories of glass and steel pierce the landscape, a monument to architectural know-how and the power of money. But the builders have taken some cash-saving ... Full Descriptionshortcuts, and it takes just one spark from an electric current to set off a disaster. During a celebratory party full of wealthy movers and shakers, the tower bursts into flames, and chaos erupts as the raging force of nature envelopes the structure. A courageous fire captain on the outside and the desperate architect trapped inside struggle to save the guests from the fire created by their greedy manipulations. A horrible fire ... (more)

The Towering Inferno

“The all-star disaster epics of the 1970s were a strange little time capsule, as if the ethical quagmires and pervasive paranoia of the era could only be expressed in blockbusters that trapped a bunch of people in an isolated spot and made sure to shockingly kill off several of the big names every so often. The super-producer of these films was Irwin Allen, and fresh off of throwing a group of stars in a capsized cruise ship in camp classic The Poseidon Adventure, he returns to the template with his “more is better” magnum opus, The Towering Inferno.   Some films are great because of the strength of their plots, their visuals, their acting, or some combination of all of the above. But there’s another group of films that are very good-to-great, and those are the films that are pure” read more

Movie Reviews (1251-1300) (50 movies items)

" One of the more fast-paced catastrophe movies ever made with the best cast of Hollywood stars getting eaten by memorable fire effects. It became a hell-of-a-lot more believable after WTC in 2001 and some scenes give a gruesome sense of authenticity now and is not nearly as "fun" as they were in 1974. Producer Irwin Allen never managed to top himself again after this one. "
