Irwin Allen Talks A Lot Here
1 February 2019 | by StuOzSee all my reviews

The making of Beyond The Poseidon Adventure (1979).

Irwin Allen is a name always seen in the credits of 1960s science fiction TV shows (Lost In Space, etc) and 1970s disaster movies (The Towering Inferno, etc) but it is not too often that you see the guy talk, talk and talk - well here is your chance!

The good news - he comes over as a highly normal film producer/ director! Maybe he has changed a bit over the years?? Cast members of Land Of The Giants and The Time Tunnel have officially reported that one of Irwin Allen's main concerns with actors was their hair styles - male or female hair styles! (see the DVDs of "Giants" and Tunnel" if you think I am talking BS).

This review is sounding like an Irwin bashing but it is not! As my IMDb review history reveals...I love the guy and his work (including Beyond The Poseidon Adventure)!

The most interesting thing to come out of the making of BTPA is Allen's final comment that the film was his "toughest shoot in 25 years"??? Really? Harder than the action scenes in The Towering Inferno (1974)? Harder than dealing with all those bees in The Swarm (1978)? Harder than making the most expensive TV pilot of the 1960s (the Land Of The Giants pilot)??

Maybe Allen was not thinking straight when he made this comment?

In this making of BTPA Michael Caine and Sally Field seem like they are having such a great time....but in later years they revealed they were not too happy with this film at all. But who cares? I love them in it. I love Irwin Allen. And I love Beyond The Poseidon Adventure (including this Behind the Scenes).

Great stuff.
