Paul Newman, Steve McQueen, William Holden and Faye Dunaway lead an all-star cast in this suspenseful epic. A dedication ceremony at the world's tallest skyscraper turns into a high-rise catastrophe when a defective wire causes an electrical flare-up. Within minutes the gala event explodes into a hellish inferno, as a raging fire traps society's most prominent citizens on the top floor.
Ratings and Reviews
Critics Consensus: Although it is not consistently engaging enough to fully justify its towering runtime, The Towering Inferno is a blustery spectacle that executes its disaster premise with flair.
Tense, star-studded disaster movie; peril, death, cursing.
