The world's tallest building is skyscraping testimony to ingenuity and innovation. In the hands of "Master of Disaster", film producer Irwin Allen, it's also the world's tallest matchstick. An all-star cast gathers for this tall story of lofty dimensions: eight Academy Award nominations and three Oscars. On the night of the building's dedication, fire erupts, trapping people on the upper floors...and igniting multiple tales of heroism and loss involving a firefighter, an architect and others caught in the steel-and-glass inferno. With starpower, pyrotechnics and suspense in abundance, The Towering Inferno sizzled at box offices worldwide.
