Architect Doug Roberts (Paul Newman) and builder James Duncan (William Holden) are hosting a party celebrating the construction of a 130-stories-tall office building and hotel in San Francisco. During the party, faulty wiring by subcontractor Roger Simmons (Richard Chamberlain) causes a spark that results in the building bursting into flames. As the building erupts, the guests are trapped in the building, and their fates rely on Fire Chief O'Hallorhan (Steve McQueen) to stop the fire and save their lives. The special effects are spectacular in this disaster film. An Oscar for Best Song went to "We May Never Love Like This Again." In addition to two other Oscars (Best Cinematography and Film Editing), the film was nominated for four others, including Best Picture and Supporting Actor (Fred Astaire for his role of con man Harlee Claiborne attending the party).
