The Towering Inferno
Disaster movies used to work because there was little certainty as to who would survive. Not so in this film, really an amalgam of two original stories, about a group of well-to-do celebrants at the top floor of a skyscraper. Cheapo electrical wiring and bad construction management cause an enormous blaze at the lower floors, steadily rising to consume the revelers. Newman's an architect, McQueen a firefighter, and Fred Astaire a kind old gentleman, for which he was Oscar-nominated. O.J. Simpson plays a security guard who rescues a cat. Now that's a disaster. --Keith Simanton

|OK, so where is The Poseidon Adventure blu-ray???||
I'm wondering the same thing. Next year (2012) will be the 40th anniversay for the original Poseidon Adventure. I'm hoping fox will release on blu ray. We need a good stereo sound on this release.

The Blu-Ray is better than the two disk dvd. The video is better and the audio is in dts 5.1 sound. Fox has done a good job for once.....
