Flood

cutler irwin production allen

(NBC, 11/24/1976, 120 mins). Irwin Allen’s first made-for-TV disaster movie follows the course charted by its wide-screen big brothers, only this time it’s a small town about to be devastated by a flood when a faulty dam bursts. At a reported cost of $2.5 million, this was, according to network publicity, the most expensive film made to that time for television. A companion Irwin Allen movie called “Fire!” was aired several weeks later, and then each was trimmed to 90 minutes and rerun as a TV double-bill subsequently. This movie’s formal title was “Irwin Allen’s Production of ‘Flood.’”
