Description: An engrossing drama of a luxury ship that goes down at sea, and the inner turmoil that the crew and passengers face. The Last Voyage (1960) tells the story of an aged ocean liner, SS Claridon that meets destruction in the Pacific Ocean. Dorothy Malone and Robert Stack portray Laurie and Cliff Henderson, who are relocating to Tokyo, Japan. The ship's faulty boilers explode, and Laurie is trapped in their stateroom by wreckage. The film primarily deals with Cliff trying to free his wife and daughter (Tammy Marihugh) from their wrecked stateroom before the ship sinks. George Sanders also stars as Captain Robert Adams, Edmond O'Brien as Second Engineer Walsh, and Woody Strode as Hank Lawson, a crewman who helps rescue the endangered couple. Captain Adams is portrayed as a rather arrogant and clueless man who likes to impress his passengers and intimidate his crew and officers. The film begins with a fire in the second-class dining room, a fact Captain Adams keeps hidden from the passengers. Second Engineer Walsh lost his father on the RMS Titanic, and has a premonition that the Claridon is an unsafe ship.
