Universal City, CA: Universal Pictures, 1970. Vintage borderless studio still photograph from the 1970 film.

The harbringer of what would be a decade full of disaster films packed with Hollywood actors metaphorically in search of a way to revive their careers in the wake of a crumbling studio system. Nonetheless, and perhaps by accident, a film that is as entertaining today as it was when it was released. Nominated for 9 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Screenplay, and Best Cinematography, and winner of one (Best Actress, going to Helen Hayes).

Shot on location in Minnesota and California.

7 x 9 inches. Fine.
