Description: Director Mark Robson (VALLEY OF THE DOLLS) spins a spectacularly entertaining guilty-pleasure yarn of Los Angeles denizens trapped by a high-magnitude earthquake, with Charlton Heston as a construction engineer trying to deal with his boozy, jealous wife, Ava Gardner, whose father (Lorne Greene of TV’s "Bonanza") just happens to be his boss, while walking a tightrope with his mistress, widow Geneviève Bujold. Then the earthquake hits! With Barry Sullivan, Lloyd Nolan and, in a surprising cameo, Walter Matthau.
