"The world’s tallest building is on fire. You are there on the 135th floor . . . no way down . . . no way out."


  • Director: John Guillermin, Irwin Allen
  • Genre: Drama, Action & Adventure, Mystery & Suspense,
  • Studio: United Films
  • Subtitled | Widescreen | Duration: 190 Mins

It took two major studios - Fox and Warner Bros, pooling resources - and two similar novels - The Tower and The Glass Inferno - to make this triple-Oscar-winning disaster movie. The fun comes from guessing which superstars will get fried to a crisp in the burning San Francisco skyscraper, ignited during the opening ceremony, and who will be saved by daring fire chief Steve McQueen. The big-name cast plays second fiddle to the blazing special effects, but the mounting suspense and outlandish rescue attempts fan the consistently entertaining flames.
