Sunday Classics: The Towering Inferno - 50th Anniversary

“One tiny spark becomes a night of blazing suspense!”

It’s the 50th Anniversary of the undisputed Big Daddy of Disaster Cinema so, of course, we need to celebrate!

When the world’s tallest building goes up in flames during its inaugural black-tie ball, Fire Chief Steve McQueen and building architect Paul Newman battle to prevent an all-star cast—William Holden, Faye Dunaway, Fred Astaire, Jennifer Jones, Richard Chamberlain, Robert Wagner, and many more—from ending up toast, despite the best efforts of a corrupt, cost-cutting contractor who’s trying to evade responsibility for the disaster.

Watch in awe as producer/co-director Irwin Allen (The Poseidon Adventure) piles on the stunt work and pyrotechnics to truly spectacular effect.
