Irwin Allen's Disaster Movie At Sea
31 July 2003 | by See all my reviews

After Irwin Allen's Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea ended in 1968, this was the only other work David Hedison did for Irwin Allen. Two other Voyage-related people worked on this TV movie, Voyage story teller & now co-producer William Welch (he died soon after this film), and actor Paul Carr, who played a Voyage crewman a few times.

David Hedison looks good in this movie and an early scene where he jumps off the ship to save the life of someone is well acted and scored by Richard LaSalle. LaSalle is no stranger to Irwin and his music really helps this TV movie. So many scenes would not of been half as good if they were not coated with LaSalle music.

Today, it is a bit hard to take the late Robert Stack too seriously because of his role in "Airplane"(1980), but if you block out "Airplane" for 90 minutes, you will take him seriously as the champion of good in this film. Bradford Dillman is the evil and he performs well.

When in LA in 1992, I did a tour of "The Queen" and it was a highlight of my first trip to America. "The Queen" and the special effects of the ship in this film are all good fun. If you like this movie I suggest you also take a ride ... Beyond the Poseidon Adventure (1979).
