The Towering Inferno, the 1974 John Guillermin San Francisco California disaster suspense thriller ("One Tiny Spark Becomes A Night Of Blazing Suspense"; "One minute you're attending a party atop the world's tallest skyscraper. The next... You're trapped with 294 other guests in the middle of a fiery hell."; "The tallest building in the world is on fire. You are there with 294 other guests. There's no way down. There's no way out."; "Hundreds trapped by flames on 135th floor of World's Tallest building"; "Day of Dedication Becomes Night of Blazing Terror"; "Rescue efforts hampered by explosions, High winds"; "Mayor, Senator among Notables Periled"; "Based on the novels 'The Tower' by Richard Martin Stern and 'The Glass Inferno' by Thomas N. Scortia and Frank M. Robinson"; nominated for the Best Picture Academy Award) starring Steve McQueen ("as O'Hallorhan The Fire Chief"), Paul Newman ("as Roberts The Architect"), William Holden ("as Duncan The Builder"), Faye Dunaway ("as Susan The Girl Friend"), Fred Astaire (nominated for the Best Supporting Actor Academy Award for this film; "as Harlee The Con Man"), Susan Blakely ("as Patty The Wife"), Richard Chamberlain ("as Simmons The Son-In-Law"), Jennifer Jones ("as Lisolette The Widow"), O.J. Simpson ("as Jernigan The Security Man"), Robert Vaughn ("as Parker The Senator"), and Robert Wagner ("as Bigelow The Publicity Man"). Note that this movie was originally two competing productions from two different studios, Warner Bros. and 20th Century-Fox (based on two similar books, "The Tower" by Richard Martin Stern, and "The Glass Inferno" by Thomas N. Scortia), and the studios wisely chose to instead collaborate on a single movie, which resulted in a pretty amazing all-star cast, and one of the very best movies of its kind!
