Actors David Hedison and Burr DeBenning did some of their own underwater stunts in this film. They both performance similar work in previous Irwin Allen productions: Hedison in "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea", and De Benning in "City Beneath the Sea". See more »
Irwin Allen disaster movie about a bomb on a passenger ship.
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 have 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).
