Almost exactly the same thing as that clown at the fire happened at the Beverly Hills Supper Club disaster in May 1977. A busboy ran on stage in the middle of a comedy routine to announce the massive structure was ablaze, and people thought it was a joke and few reacted. I believe the final death toll was 165, nearly all in the room where the warning was issued.

Years ago when I was seeing Gladiator, a fire alarm went off and someone on a loudspeaker said ignore it, it's a malfunction, but I got out of there and got a voucher for seeing a movie again at a later time.

Fire is the devil's only friend, and the devil has never been kind to any person.

Being an old git, one remembers about reading this tragedy in the news. You are correct ER, the death toll was 165, with the last victim dying 9 months later. With 200 injured. It was the worst fire in the U.S. since 1944 and the circus fire in Harford, Connecticut, in which 168 people died. While there were some claims that arson was involved, it really seems to be an accident waiting to happen, as the loss of life was put down to . . .

overcrowding -- inadequate fire exits -- faulty wiring -- lack of firewalls -- poor construction -- safety code violations -- and poor oversight by regulatory officials.

Most of which means that a fire of such magnitude is unlikely to occur today.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
