During World War II, the passenger liner Goliath is sunk by a German submarine. Portions of the ship's hull remain airtight, and some of the passengers and crew survive.

In the beginning one of the techs has a side-scan sonar image of the R.M.S. Goliath in profile, as if were laying on its side. We later see that the Goliath is upright on the ocean floor. See more »

I am reaching way back into my memory for this one, for I saw it on T.V. in 1981 and haven't heard anything about it since, except in 1992 when a co-worker and I got on the subject of shipwrecks and somehow we both remembered this movie from our pasts. We were so vague on the details we had both thought it might have been a dream until we corroborated each other's memory!
Brilliant how an "offshoot" society--a microcosm of our own, with all the various social strata--was represented. There was even a sub-sub-society, the "Bow People," who terrorized those in the main part of the ship.
Also, chilling how the ship's brass were "relieved" to find out that Hitler had been defeated--not even realizing that they had established their own police state far below the surface of the ocean!
