The Queen Mary Remembered

Queen Mary Remembered, The

From its maiden voyage on May 27, 1936, until its decommissioning in 1967, the RMS Queen Mary served as the Flag Ship of British ocean transportation, and as a lasting example of British "endeavor, achievement, and excellence." The Queen Mary was designed with the wealthiest travelers in mind and with an eye toward garnering the majority of the trans-Atlantic passenger business during the mid 1930's and for years to come. This program showcases the memories and memorabilia of actual designers, crew members, and passengers of the Queen Mary, who recount the unprecedented splendor and engineering marvels of this ship and the lasting impact the vessel had upon them. The program is rich with original film and still photographs, and it includes an appropriately engaging and flowing musical score. Viewers see the lush originality, the uncompromising furnishings, the unparalleled craftsmanship, and the endless amenities that were lavished upon the celebrities, royalty, and millionaires who were fortunate enough to book transport on the Queen Mary. Viewers also experience the same sense of sadness felt by residents of Southampton, England, when their Queen Mary departed on its final voyage on October 31, 1967, eventually docking in Long Beach, California, where she was converted into a world-class hotel. Viewers will be awestruck by the sheer enormity and grandeur of this storybook ocean liner and too will feel as though they have been enriched by this "floating palace." Produced by David and Sharon Ellery. IJSCA 50 min.
