1974. USA. Directed by Mark Robson. Screenplay by George Fox, Mario Puzo. With Charlton Heston, Ava Gardner, George Kennedy. Another of the decade’s celebrity-bloated disaster epics, Earthquake examines several personal stories during the course of a major seismic event in Los Angeles. Although ostensibly character-focused, the main appeal of the film lies in the mass destruction wrought by the monster quake. 123 min.
