The Poseidon Adventure

Directed by Ronald Neame • 1972 • United States
Starring Gene Hackman, Ernest Borgnine, Red Buttons

A titanic ensemble cast led by Gene Hackman and Ernest Borgnine headlines this epically entertaining disaster-movie classic. While making its final voyage from New York to Greece, the soon-to-be-decommissioned luxury ocean liner the SS Poseidon is overturned in a fierce tsunami, forcing the motley crew of passengers to embark on a watery journey through the ship’s bowels in order to survive. Shelley Winters, Roddy McDowall, Stella Stevens, Red Buttons, Carol Lynley, and Leslie Nielsen are all on board for the blockbuster hit that set the standard for the wave of 1970s disaster films that followed.
