Trivia

According to legendary SFX technician L.B. Abbott, this film used some out-take footage of the model of the S.S. Queen Mary used in The Poseidon Adventure (1972). In this TV-movie the scene is where the ship is listing to one side and then begins to right itself. This was actually a rejected special effects scene because the miniature wave that was supposed to capsize the model in "Poseidon" was too small and had to be re-shot. Luckily that 'bad footage' was saved and came in handy for this TV-movie. Also, every scene of the ship at sea was footage from "Poseidon Adventure" (mostly establishing shots) since the original model of the Queen Mary was no longer available for filming. See more »

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

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).
