The last known photo of Titanic
Author's collection

That boat was a damn big one. Really big. Quite titanic.
There have been many books written on the subject of the unsinkable vessel (almost 1,517, the number of people who died) but Raise the Titanic was a whole different cargo of thrills and chills.
Join the underwater race to salvage the Titanic and its vital defense cargo when the Cold War thriller now that its made its Blu-ray debut from Shout! Factory. The Blu-ray/ DVD combo pack boasts an all-new high-definition transfer as well as a new featurette The Making of Raise the Titanic, with Director of Photography Matthew F. Leonetti, Model Unit Director Ricou Browning, Model and Mechanical Effects Supervisor John Richardson and Underwater Camera Operator Mike Ferris.
Adapted from Clive Cussler's international bestseller, Raise the Titanic follows the exploits of American special agent Dirk Pitt as he sets out to recover critical material from the Titanic which could make the US impregnable to atomic attack. The ship is down too deep for divers and the only solution is to raise it. The incredible project must be managed in absolute secrecy due to the threat of deadly interference from a rival nation. When the Titanic is finally, and majestically, brought to the surface , it’s discovered the vital, rare material is missing!
We see it as a breathtaking adventure from beginning to end, co-starring our faves Jason Robards, Richard Jordan, David Selby, Anne Archer and Alec Guinness.
