Atlantic Ferry (1941)
After their state-of-the-art steamship the Gigantic sinks minutes after being launched, the MacIver brothers of Liverpool begin to plan for the future of their company. David takes a business-like approach and eventually joins forces with former rivals but decides the expensive gamble of steamships is not they way to go. Charles embarks on a different course -- sailing on a doomed ship to America to forge an alliance with Samuel Cunard. Eventually brothers are reunited in their bid to gain the mail contract from the British government, although their relationship might not last since each is in love with Mary, the daughter of one of their backers.- Written by Ron Kerrigan <email@example.com>
A century ago, strong rivalry existed between the ship-owners of the two great British ports, Liverpool and Glasgow...and it was the vision and tenacity of young Chrles MacIver of Liverpool, which built the first fleet of steamships to ply the Atlantic, forming an unbreakable bond of friendship and understanding between the people of Britain and the people of the United States.- Written by Les Adams <firstname.lastname@example.org>
