Queen Elizabeth and Building of SS France Ocean Liner DVD.
This DVD tells the story of the RMS Queen Elizabeth as well as the building of the SS France in the early 1960s in two films.
Film #1 -
Queen Elizabeth - Getting There Is Half The Fun is the story of the RMS Queen Elizabeth. Launched by Cunard in September 1938, the magnificent 83,637 ton, 1,031 foot-long vessel was the largest passenger ship in the world until 1962. With 761 cabins, she carried 2,283 passengers in luxurious comfort. The film depicts the Queen in all her majesty , offering an extensive full color tour of her living, dining and recreational facilities. From her classic cabins, kitchens, swimming pools and huge deck spaces to her elegant dining rooms, this program is a lasting tribute to the Queen Elizabeth, which met a very unfortunate end in Hong Kong harbor in early 1972.
Film #2 - The Building of the SS France - This program depicts the construction of this 1,035 foot, 66,348 ton superliner, which surpassed the Queen Elizabeth as the world's largest liner when commissioned in 1962. You'll see fascinating views of the great ship being built at the Chantiers De L'Atlantique shipyard in Saint Nazaire, France, along with her launching in May 1960. The France became the SS Norway in 1980 and is now retired.
Total runtime for the Queen Elizabeth and Building of SS France Ocean Liner DVD is about 60 minutes in black-and-white and color. Format is NTSC DVD and region-free.
