The Towering Inferno


Quote: One tiny spark becomes a night of blazing suspense in director Irwin Allen’s (Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea) three-time Oscar winning* masterpiece of suspense, The Towering Inferno, debuting July 14 on BD from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. There’s no way out and no way down for Steve McQueen (The Magnificent Seven), Paul Newman (Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid), William Holden (Sunset Blvd.), Fred Astaire (Daddy Long Legs), Richard Chamberlain (“The Thorne Birds”), Robert Wagner (Austin Powers) and Faye Dunaway (Mommy Dearest), trapped on the 129th floor of the world’s tallest building when the opening night gala turns into a nightmare of unimaginable proportions. A spectacular disaster epic that defined the genre, The Towering Inferno shocked audiences with its groundbreaking special effects and dizzying scale, garnering 10 Oscar nominations at the 1975 Academy Awards, including Best Picture.
