It's one of the great guilty pleasures of 70s cinema. The blockbuster Sensurround epic Earthquake that boasted an all-star cast headed by stalwart Hollywood icon Charlton Heston. The dialogue is awful, the Universal sets are cheesy but the model work is still impressive and the effects still hold up well today. Our favorite howler is the casting of Lorne Greene as Ava Gardner's father, even though he was only six years older than her. Ross Warner pays tribute to the film in a major article in issue #20 of Cinema Retro and Thomas Hauuerslev provides a fascinating history of the short-lived Sensurround gimmick.
