  1. An anecdote: When this came out I talked a friend of mine into seeing it with me. All went well up to the scene where Robert Wagner runs through the room, catching on fire until it consumes him. I was so freaked out that I told my friend I had to leave and just couldn’t watch anymore. She responded…”you dragged me to see this and now you’re gonna sit here and watch the whole thing with me. I’m not leaving!” Properly chastised, I stayed to watch the rest of a very entertaining film!

  2. As a former firefighter turned a practicing architect, this is one of my favorite guilty pleasures. It’s nice having Steve McQueen and Paul Newman represent these professions on film.
