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.

A separate Quad set, number 18, features The Poseidon Adventure. The question is, why wasn’t The Poseidon Adventure included in set 17 to make an Irwin Allen quad set? Included in set 18 are the following movies:
Battle for the Planet of the Apes
The Day The Earth Stood Still
The Neptune Factor
The Poseidon Adventure
We have noticed today that the limited edition (3000 copies) Poseidon Adventure CD is already sold out at La-La Land Records. A lot of them have probably been bought up by dealers planning to resell them on, so you may still find them available elsewhere. Worth comparing prices though as we’ve seen some being sold for over 3 times the original price.
