The Towering Inferno (1974)

Director: John Guillermin


Classic 1970s disaster movie about a fire that breaks out in a state-of-the-art San Francisco high-rise building during the opening ceremony attended by a host of A-list guests. An overworked fire chief (Steve McQueen) and the building's architect (Paul Newman) must cooperate in the struggle to save lives and subdue panic while a corrupt, cost-cutting contractor (William Holden) tries to evade responsibility for the disaster.
