||The Towering Inferno Special edition|
This long awaited special edition is a must for fans of this,probably the best ever made disaster movie,crammed with featurettes both new and old and superb print,this should have been released years ago but in the wake of 9/11 it lost out on a 25 year special.

||The best disaster flick ever|
You just can't remake this one. If they tried, it would be a CGI-disaster. This is good old fashioned real-life setpieces. And with fire that's pure excitement. The scene where Robert Wagner ('s stunt double) catches flames (in slo-mo) is of such horror AND beauty. Paul Newman is as good as ever, so is William Holden, Steve McQueen and so many more. The script is good (better then you'd expect in a 70's star-packed vehicle). And did I mention the building itself ? Wow, a fantastic model, looking so real (see www.thetoweringinferno.info for pics of it). It's just a BLAST !

The Towering Inferno is one of my Old School Favorites with an allstar cast. One of Steve Maqueens best roles. Paul Newman, Faye Dunaway and Williamd Holding all add great roles and make this film one of my favorites. O.J. Simpson manages to lay down a good role as well.
