The Poseidon Adventure (1972)Not as far fetched a premise as when the film was made, a fully loaded passenger ship on its final voyage is capsized by a giant 90' wave. Surviving passengers must make their way through the upside down ship to the surface. The movie was shot in sequence so the actors (an all star cast) got wetter and dirtier. This is one of the great disaster movies of the seventies; it even inspired a famous Mad magazine cover. Lots of fun.
