Researching The Poseidon Adventure

18th June 2011

We have spent several weeks trying to identify as many of the cast of The Poseidon Adventure as we can. We still have several names and faces we’re trying to match up, and would welcome help from any movie buffs who would like to participate in this research.  We feel it is important that this is done in order to pay tribute to the many performers who don’t always get the credit they deserve.  If you can help, please contact IANN.

We have also added some galleries of photos of the Queen Mary, the Poseidon filming miniature, a selection of storyboards, and pages of the shooting schedule.
