Andrew L. Stone
Disaster for the passengers and crew of a luxury liner when an exploding boiler blows a hole in her side and it's all boats away. A certain realism is ensured by using the Ile de France on her way to the scrap-yard. But with Dorothy Malone trapped in her cabin and gurgling just above the waterline through the frenzied rescue operations, what price anything but absurdity along with the tension?

This single-layered, progressive transfer appears quite dirty with some digital noise present. Colors are a bit dulled and it looks more like cheap film stock. A healthy dose of speckles can be seen throughout the film. 2.0 channel audio is clean and clear. In short a quite unremarkable image and sound. Warner have included standard optional subtitles.
No extras save a trailer (that looks a little worse for wear).
The film should be easy to pass up but for those into the luxury-liner-disaster thing - they may want to check it out - for the rest I'd say 'wait for the next boat'.
