Did You Know?


The physical appearance in this production of Kenneth Cranham is probably more influenced by the appearance of White Star Line Captain Edward John Smith (famous as the captain of the Titanic) than by the appearance of the real Lusitania captain William Turner, whom Cranham is portraying. Unlike Smith, who's white beard is famous from still photographs and from Bernard Hill's portrayal, surviving photographs of Turner invariably show him as clean-shaven. See more »

Captain Hobbs: In wartime, my lord, there are things more important than the truth. In wartime, my lord, the survival of the nation as a whole becomes paramount. Any hint of discredit to the Admiralty could lose us important friends among the neutral countries, do you understand?
Lord Mersey: Are you suggesting that I declare an innocent man guilty?
Captain Hobbs: I'm suggesting, my lord, that you find a way to conclude this inquiry without damaging our chances of winning the war.

A really good docu-drama especially for the discovery channel
17 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

People always talk about Titanic this Titanic that, it was an accident waiting to happen. People died yes on that ship where it could have been averted. The Lusitania however, was the beginning and the end for the Germans and eventually lose World War One. The sinking of the ship was a barbaric act and no doubt a sad ending for those who died. Unlike the Titanic where there wasn't enough lifeboats, Lusitania had all the safety feature that was built into after Titanic like double hull and more then enough lifeboat for the passenger, but wasn't build to stop a torpedo.

The movie itself was really good. I'm surprise that guy from Mummy was in the movie and instead of being a comic relief, gave a very serious acting in the movie where he was a victim on the ship. The other people in the movie also showed the same and for a quality we expected in a docu-drama movie, the movie more the met my expectation. The sinking was very well done and was more sad then Titanic. Thank goodness there is none of this Jack and Rose crap in it.

Otherwise, a very well made movie and one that should be a reminder about how Lusitania became a pawn in the World War.
