Let’s Be Earthquake! (1974)

With all the news about the earthquakes and eruptions in Iceland, I thought it would be fun to have an Earthquake thread.

I’m Ava Gardner chewing the scenery while I fake my suicide via pills.

I'm Ava Gardner's incredibly sensitive hand. A man steps on it on the ladder and that causes so much pain she lets go and plunges to her death. He just stepped on it. It wasn't severed.

Actually, it was the other way around. 'Earthquake' (1974) was released November 15th, and 'The Towering Inferno' (1974) on December 16th. It rode Earthquake's coat tails.

Touché, R38.

On second thought, though, all these rode on the coat tails of 'Airport' 1970. ;)

Continuity mistake: When the big afro gal opens her jacket to show Lew her shirt, her nipples change appearance between shots, from visible, to smooth like she's wearing a bra, and then visible again.
