“One tiny spark becomes a night of blazing suspense!” The undisputed Big Daddy of Disaster Cinema: the world’s tallest building goes up in flames during its inaugural black-tie ball and Fire Chief Steve McQueen battles to prevent an all-star cast—Paul Newman, William Holden, Faye Dunaway, Fred Astaire, Jennifer Jones, O.J. Simpson, and many more—from ending up toast. Producer/co-director Irwin Allen piles on the stunt work and pyrotechnics to truly spectacular effect.
