Raise The Titanic

Raise The Titanic
Raise the Titanic is a 1980 adventure film inspired by Clive Cussler’s novel ‘Raise the Titanic!’.
The movie is about raising the wreck of the ocean liner RMS Titanic in order to obtain a rare mineral believed to be on-board, for use by the US military in a sound beam to take down missiles.
A Greek ocean liner was converted into a Titanic replica for filming and a scale model used for underwater scenes.
“It would have been cheaper to lower the Atlantic Ocean” Lew Grade, Film Backer
The musical score was created by John Barry, a Golden Glove and Academy Award winning composer.
Raise the Titanic was a box office bomb, failing to recoup the estimated $40 million cost of production.

Harland and Wolff

Harland and Wolff shipyard is located at Queen’s Island in Belfast, N. Ireland.
Over the years Harland and Wolff constructed several famous ocean liners including the RMS Titanic, RMS Olympic and HMHS Britannic.
The shipyard was formed in 1861 by Edward James Harland (1831–1895) and Gustav Wilhelm Wolff (1834–1913).
Harland and Wolff Built the RMS Titanic
Harland died in 1894 and William James Pirrie became chairman of the company.
In 1907 Thomas Andrews became the general manager and head of the draughting department during the period of constructing ocean liners.
Harland and Wolff built monitors and cruisers during World War I.
During World War II they built 6 aircraft carriers and 2 cruisers, as well as other naval ships. The workforce reached 35,000.
Twin Gantry cranes, Samson and Goliath were built in 1974 and 1969 respectively, and still dominate the Belfast skyline.
Overseas competition and the jet-age led to continuing problems and in 1977 the company was nationalized.
By 1989 business had declined and the number of employees had fallen to around 3000. The company was bought from the British government in a management/employee buy-out in partnership with the Fred Olsen, a Norwegian shipping magnate.
The new company was called Harland and Wolff Holdings Plc.
