A Set of 2
Search for the Titanic and Return to the Titanic
Search for the Titanic
Narrated by Orson Welles. A must for movie and Titanic buffs because it holds the record for the shortest run; playing one weekend and closing for lack of box office interest. Art on the video box was adapted from an original poster illustration for the movie by Ken Marschall. This expedition took place before there was world-wide Titanic fascination and before Dr Ballard and his team of American and French scientists found the wreck in 1985. Ballard and THS President Bill Tantum began their quest in 1977. When Tantum died in 1980, finding the ship was put on hold and another group searched. This is their story as scientists and film makers battle hurricane-force winds and mountainous seas in a herculean attempt to discover the Titanic. Orson Welles describes a fascinating journey when sonar indicated a metallic object on the ocean floor. Color 109 minutes.
Return to the Titanic
Narrated by James Drury. Driven from their search the year before by fierce storms, the expedition team returns once again into the open jaws of the North Atlantic. Determined to discover the elusive White Star liner, they send their sophisticated sonar and camera equipment into the bone-crushing depths of the frigid Atlantic and are rewarded for their two years of work with results. Especially for history buffs interested in Titanic’s continuing saga, this is an important and untold story of the undeclared race to discover the lost liner. Color 53 minutes.
