Irwin Allen


Take a look back at the making of some of the biggest disaster movies of the 1970s and at the amazing career of one of Hollywood’s top filmmakers - Irwin Allen.  As the Master of Disaster, Allen gave us harrowing adventure tales in the grandest fashion only he could imagine.  With hits like The Poseidon Adventure and The Towering Inferno, he brought together all-star casts, major Hollywood studios and state-of-the-art effects to create “event” pictures that earned millions. In the process he made himself a legend and helped change the industry and the way movies are made. Filled with rare photos and take of movie-making history, Master of Disaster covers all Allen’s 1970s disaster pictures and is a tribute to the like and career of Irwin Allen.
