How could you not include "1900" with Tim Roth... Spectacular film! Don't miss the ballroom piano rolling scene... hilarious!
Trivia: Clarence Williams III (Remember Linc from Mod Squad?) plays Jelly Roll Morton, who in real life played saloons in the New Orleans district called Storyville during his youth, as did Williams' grandfather, Clarence Williams.

The Legend of 1900!!!

UKBayern February 23rd, 2011 07:21 AM

Under Siege 2 is on a train and not on a ship at all. Under Siege 1 is not on a cruiseship but on a battleship.

Why the ludicrously awful 1997 Titanic and not the far better "A Night to Remember"?

gatour February 23rd, 2011 10:40 AM

UKBayen, Yep, I was scratching my head on that one. While Under Siege 1 to me was enjoyable brain candy, Under Siege 2 was unbearable.

Nothing on the list really stands out to me. Well Titanic was well made, I was not particularly fond of it, because in essence you already knew how it was going to end.

I kind of like the remake of Poseidon with Kurt Russell

Darn that pesky 2. Thanks for the heads up -- we've corrected the poll ... and added an "other - please post" option, which we're glad to see you guys are already utilizing.

No Contest
 
In my opinion "An Affair to Remember" is one of the best!

Not to mention that it served as the model for "Sleepless in Seattle" remake...

Best cast and best three-hankie movie there is!

Voyage of the Damned, 1976 film based on "The story was inspired by true events concerning the fate of the MS St. Louis ocean liner carrying Jewish refugees from Germany to Cuba in 1939." Starred; Faye Dunaway, Lee Grant, Max Von Sydow..earned three Academny award nominations

Seven Seas, Seven Films: Cruise Critic's Favorite Flicks

My list is oldies but goodies

The Last Voyage- Robert Stack, Dorothy McGuire, George Saunders- they actually sunk a ship.

Rome Adventure- Troy Donahue, Suzanne Plesette- in the first few scenes they are sailing from NYC to Rome. She has a standard cabin (basically the size of my 1st apartment) with soo many suitcases & trunks. Remember trunks?

Ship of Fools- a true story

I Was A Male War Bride- Cary Grant- last scenes are on a troop ship with Cary in drag as an Army Nurse

Life Boat- WWII life as a microcosim

Yes, "The Legend of 1900," not "1900."

"The Imposters" with Stanley Tucci and Oliver Platt.

Sorry, I prefer "Love Affair" with Irene Dunne and Charles Boyer to the remake with Deborah Kerr and Cary Grant - a much better picture.

Also, "Shall We Dance" with Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire,
"The Navigator" with Buster Keaton,
"One Way Passage" with Kay Francis and William Powell,
"Between Two Worlds" with John Garfield and Sydney Greenstreet,
"Monkey Business" and "Night at the Opera" with the Marx Brothers,
"The Captain Hates the Sea" with John Gilbert and Akim Tamiroff,
"The Lady Eve" with Barbara Stanwyck and Henry Fonda,
"The Great Lover" with Bob Hope and Rhonda Fleming......

In classic Hollywood, all the major film studios had permanent standing sets for ocean liners. They not only were used in movie after movie, they were great places for executives to have noontime rendezvous with secretaries and starlets.

Cheers,
3rd&4thT

Couldn't remember the title of the Garfield/Greenstreet film- an oldie but a goodie.
Agree about Marx Bro- especially for the Art Deco interiors.
It seems this thread should be subtitled "Turner Classics Lovers"

US Independence
 
took me back to our first cruise... US Independence run by the Hawaiian Cruise Line... was our 20th anniversary, wife is a teacher and we parlay'd a Hawaiian conference into a crusie... years before my parents sailed on the Independence so I thought it would be fun on a lot of levels...didn't have a clue and paid full rack rate for a "terrible" cabin... at check in they up-graded us about 6 levels because of how much we paid... turned out to be a fantastic cabin on the main deck... the Independence was built in the days of "class" bookings and was very hard to get around they built the ships to make it difficult to get from 3'd to 2'nd to 1'st class areas... about 900ft with 130 crew... why write this now... because it was used as the set for the movie An Affair to Remember and the film ran in a loop around the clock in a small projection room... always so glad we had the chance to cruise in the "old style" on a "real" ship......

leoandhugh February 24th, 2011 04:16 PM

My 2 favorites are "Ship of Fools" and "Lifeboat" because of the superb casts and wonderful acting in both. Tallulah in one and Viven Leigh in the other. Also memorable was "The Last Voyage" where they semi-sank the Ile d' France as she was making her last voyage to the ship breakers
