Triangle Factory Fire

I vaguely recall this 1979 made for TV film featuring "Happy Days" Dad Bosley and "Facts of Life" matron Charlotte Rae "The Triangle Factory Fire Scandal"

TCM is annoyed with the length of the film and its historical inaccuracies:

"The real-life catastrophe took a mere eleven minutes; the movie, with its soap opera plots and assorted inaccuracies (like several key references by some of the ladies to the popularity of Charlie Chaplin who at the time was totally unknown and did not make his first American movie until three years later), took two agonizing hours to unreel."

Tweet storm on the Triangle Fire:
