[explaining his reason for staying behind]
You people mentioned you watched my old films on television. That was the real me... young, vibrant, everybody's hero. The way I want to be remembered. Every good actor knows when it's time to get off. But, do let my agent know, will you, old chap?

Yes, sir. The William Morris Agency.
You remembered! I always did have trouble with my lines. Much preferred swordplay.

I remember this when it premiered in Nov. of 1981 when I was in the 7th grade. I remember the specifics very well, however other reviewers are wrong about a few of the facts. First off Christopher Lee's character was NOT the captain, he was the third officer of the ship and was in charge of the engine room. Second, the movie was not made to be a horror flick. I remember the T.V. Guide writeup about it then and it is a Mystery-Suspense story. Overall a very cool movie that had an interesting premise of what if? What if the Queen Mary sank or the Queen Elizabeth sank and what would the people be like after 40 years of isolation from the world. Lee is the most noteable when it comes to the acting. I like the other actors in the film but I will say that Mark Harmon, who is a good actor, in this one really overacted a few times. All in all a great story, decent acting and cool sets.
