    Los Angeles is the natural site for a film about earthquakes: they happen there frequently, and the landscape is familiar to moviegoers from thousands of films. A huge number of ongoing vignettes, which include cameos from numerous celebrities and stars are tied together by the ongoing efforts of architect Graff (Charlton Heston) to rescue his estranged spoiled-rich-girl wife (Ava Gardner), while helping out with the ongoing rescue efforts taking place around him and also trying to determine what has happened to his mistress Denise (Geneviève Bujold). The rumbling sound effect designed for this film (Sensurround) won a "Best Sound" Oscar for the film in 1975. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi

      Earthquake is a great classic disaster movie.

      With todays lack of quality movies Earthquake is one of the diamonds in the rough. I love the disaster movies of old, and couldn't wait to get my hands on this. Unfortunately, I had to because it was not available at my local BestBuy store. I still managed to get it from BestBuy Online, and I have not been dissatisfied at all with this purchase. I'm just waiting for The Towering Inferno to come out on Blu-Ray. That will definitely be a must buy; and if it does come out I hope they will supply the stores with it.

      It's an old school disaster film with pretty good special effects for the time frame that it was in.

      One of the great disaster movies from the 70's along with The Towering Inferno & The Poseidon Adventure.
