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

"Released on December 13, 1974 A co-production with Warner Bros. This is the first major, big budget, all-star epic production to be financed and co-produced by two major Hollywood studios. This was done as a way to split the production and distribution costs equally as the movie was steadily going over budget and I'm sure Fox didn't want to risk having another "Cleopatra" sized financial catastrophe on their hands.

" Date: 5/9/2021 Viewed: Amazon Prime Re-Watch Note: I haven't seen this movie since I was a little kid and it holds up very well. The Towering Inferno is a solid classic in my opinion. I love the intense atmosphere that this film has because you can feel the burning temperature inside the building. John Guillermin (the director) did a fantastic job making everything so hot. The Towering Inferno gives you that feeling of anxiety when watching this film because you want to see these characters"
