The Towering Inferno (10-Dec-1974)

Director: John Guillermin

Writer: Stirling Silliphant

From novel: The Tower by Richard Martin Stern and The Glass Inferno by Thomas N. Scortia and Frank M. Robinson

Music: John Williams

Producer: Irwin Allen

Keywords: Action/Thriller, Disaster

A fire caused by faulty electrical wiring at the opening ceremony of the world's tallest skyscraper puts the lives of 300 people on the 135th floor at risk. An all-star cast isn't dragged down by the mediocre dialogue, making this one of the better disaster films.
