the last voyage
I saw this film for the first time nearly 30 years ago. it stood out then and it stands out now. One of a kind film that will never be made again , scenes that stand out are the clear and intense scenes between the capt and 1st engineer , played by George sanders and Edmund o brien. The actors did all their own stunts in the final scene as the ship sinks , and the acting and physical work done by all the actors and miss Malone is really top notch professional. No cgi effects , filmed on board a real liner ( the engine room scenes are brilliant ) the camera work is top notch all the way through the film. I cannot think of any other actor to play the part of Capt Robert Adams--- George Sanders seemed to have been a perfect casting. Edmund 'o' brien is simply an excellent character actor-- again who else could have played the part of walsh. Maybe some suggestions by other reviewers.
What a great film, in so many ways! The story was great. The acting was superb, especially the little girl. She was so convincing. The camera work and special effects in this 54 year old film m was nothing less than great. I would gladly stand this film up as one of the greatest "edge of your seat" films ever made. Make sure you have everything you need, like snacks and stuff before the movie begins, because you won't be able to leave your seat once it starts. I'm sure I will watch this one each time you show this great film. Thank you TCM, for blessing us with this one.
The most amazing performance by a child actress
The little girl who played Robert Stack's daughter in "The Last Voyage" gave the most realistic & touching performanceFrom a very young actress I can remember. I never for a moment didn't believe the actors weren't her parents. When the girl was hanging over the whole in the ship on the plank I believed that. But was most impressed when she was fighting Woody Strode to get back to her mother. Brilliant !
A SeaBlast from Cinema's SeaPast!
- Marcus Dylan Smith
"The Last Voyage" figurativaly blew me out of the water! Not only is the film a bombastic action film, but touching and dramatic. I believe its stands up to the prowess of James Cameron's "Titanic", while also with standing the test of time. I mean come on! Can one really compete with a filmcamera capturing a real ship, actually sinking!?! I think not! I would have to say that this film suprised me with its abliltiy to engross me in its characters struggle, while leaving me in awe as I tried not root for more explosions, smoke, and salt water and boy did I get what I wanted from the Director, Crew, and Cast! I plan on getting on a luxury cruise liner and turning on TCM in hopes of seeing this film so I can scare myself!
Disaster At Sea
- Bruce Reber
"The Last Voyage" (1960) is a taut and suspensful film about a doomed ocean liner and the efforts of the crew and passengers to save themselves before it sinks. It followed "Titanic" (1953) with Barbara Stanwyck and "A Night To Remember" (1958), two versions of the story of the sinking of the Titanic, and preceeded "The Poseidon Adventure" (1972), Irwin Allen's all-star disaster epic, "Titanic" (the 1997 remake by director James Cameron), and "Poseidon" (the 2006 remake of "The Poseidon Adventure"). "The Last Voyage" was made long before CGI, and the special visual effects still hold up well 50 years later. An ocean liner that was scheduled to be junked was purchased for filming, and everything (including the fires and explosions) was filmed only once, since obviously there were no chances for multiple takes. Good performances by Robert Stack, Dorothy Malone, George Sanders and the rest of the cast. "The Last Voyage" is another great film that I would like to see on DVD.
