Collection of four classic films from the 1970s. 'Earthquake' (1974) centres on the repercussions of a massive earthquake that rips apart the city of Los Angeles.
Amongst those attempting to restore order are engineer Stewart Graff (Charlton Heston) and streetwise cop Lew Slade (George Kennedy), whilst construction company owner Sam Royce (Lorne Greene) struggles to escape from his own devastated building.
In 'National Lampoon's Animal House' (1978) college dean Vernon Wormer (John Vernon) is forced to turn to a fraternity full of sanctimonious rich boys to help him close down rogue fraternity Delta House.
However, Delta House's affiliates are equally determined to continue their partying and high jinks, culminating in an epic showdown during the town's annual homecoming parade.
In 'Smokey and the Bandit' (1977) bootlegging truck driver Bo 'The Bandit' Darville (Burt Reynolds) bets Texan millionaire Big Enos Purdette (Pat McCormick) that he can smuggle a consignment of prohibited beer across state lines in just over a day.
However, after picking up runaway bride Carrie (Sally Field) along the way, he runs into Texas sheriff Buford Justice (Jackie Gleason), who will stop at nothing to see justice served.
Finally, in 'The Sting' (1973), young hustler Johnny Hooker (Robert Redford) vows to get revenge after his partner is murdered at the behest of mob boss Doyle Lonnegan (Robert Shaw).
After travelling to Chicago, Hooker teams up with old hand Henry Gondorff (Paul Newman), and together they form an ingenious plan to take down the dangerous crime lord.
