UW Cinematheque - Damn You All to Hell!: Charlton Heston and the End of the World

Earthquake | USA | 1974 | 35mm | 129 min. Director: Mark Robson

Event Details

Saturday, November 5, 2022
7 p.m.
Cast: Charlton Heston, Ava Gardner, George Kennedy
Heston stars as a former football star forced to choose between Gardner and Genevieve Bujold amidst a Los Angeles in ruins in Robson’s soapy epic. An all-star cast keeps things moving and grooving, with particularly vivid turns from Marjoe Gortner as a sublimely creepy grocery store clerk and Kennedy as the ultimate L.A. cop. Co-written by The Godfather creator Mario Puzo, Earthquake is arguably the best of the 70s disaster films.
