The Towering Inferno

The Towering Inferno is a 1974 American action disaster film produced by Irwin Allen featuring an all-star cast led by Steve McQueen and Paul Newman. It was directed by John Guillermin, with Allen himself directing the action sequences.
A co-production between 20th Century Fox and Warner Bros.

Scortia and Frank M. Robinson.
The film was a critical success, earning an Academy Award nomination for Best Picture and was the highest grossing film released in 1974. The film also features Jennifer Jones’s final screen appearance…
