I loved this movie, but it always bothered me that they never showed the impact the flames above had on the world below - like when the bodies fell, and when that water tank blew up, they didn't show the water go into the lobby or anything.

butcher, thanks for reading and for all the comments you've made here lately. I hope you've enjoyed your visit to The Underworld!

I recall that Mad Magazine (or was it Cracked) had a parody comic strip of The Towering Inferno and at the end of it, when the water tanks blew, everyone went screaming from the bottom of the building and there was going to be a sequel to the story called "FLOOD!" (Of course, Irwin Allen soon did make a TV movie called Flood!, but it was unrelated to this.)

Take care!

Thank you for the mini-tribute to Jennifer Jones. She was magnificent in "A Portrait of Jennie," one of the great romantic movies of all times. I am glued to the screen from beginning to end... A haunting performance... Bless you Jennie wherever you are...
