Ernest Borgnine, star of The Poseidon Adventure, Fire, When Time Ran Out, and Alice in Wonderland has passed away aged 95. Up until very recently he had been attending signing events with other members of The Poseidon Adventure cast and will be much missed by Irwin Allen and movie fandom.
The Sound of Music Family Scrapbook by Fred Bronson is a new book being published on 1st April 2012 featuring stories of the experiences of each of the child actors during the filming of classic musical The Sound of Music. Contains rare photos as well as a DVD with on-set and behind the scenes home movies.
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.
