ORIGINAL POSEIDON ADVENTURE SHIP DRAWING
Before the movie Titanic came out, there was the "Poseidon
Adventure". This was one of Producer Irwin Allen's favorite films.
The movie was released in 1972 and starred, Gene Hackman, Ernest
Borgnine, Red Button, Carol Lynley, Roddy McDowall, Stella Stevens,
Shelly Winters, & Jack Albertson.
Passengers on a capsize ocean-liner struggle to survive. A first of
the all-star disaster pictures of the 1970's. Terrific storyline,
Oscar-winning special effects. The drawing featured here is an original
prop schematic map of the great ship. This original prop drawing, was
created for the use in Irwin Allen's "The Poseidon Adventure" film.
The drawing is printed on a water proof paper, piece measures approx.
3'x2 1/2'. The drawing is an excellent condition and was stored away for
many years by a prop guy that worked on the film. I was very surprised to
be the only bidder on this item, and winning it for only $200.00.
I purchase the item on September 12, 2001.
