The Towering Inferno (1974)

In John Guillermin's and Irwin Allen's Best Picture-nominated disaster film classic, an epic film about the world's tallest 138 story Glass Tower - a San Francisco skyscraper - on fire:

  • the all-star cast - with the prescient words of SFFD Fire Chief Michael "Mike" O'Hallorhan (Steve McQueen): "You know we got lucky tonight, body count's less than 200. Someday you're gonna kill 10,000 in one of these firetraps"
  • the exciting scene of the rescue of the trapped occupants of the stalled exterior glass-walled scenic elevator
