Trailer Tuesday: The Poseidon Adventure (1972)

I was born in 1972 so I didn’t catch the Poseidon Adventure in its first theatrical release, I did however get to see it on a double bill with another Irwin Allen disaster flick, Damnation Alley, a couple of years later at my local Drive-In. This is probably one of my favorite movies of all time…I have a few of those…but I can go home and spin the DVD in my player after a hard day’s work and still feel the same thrill I received when I was but a youth.

I really like how they decided to say that the actors were actually on the ship when the wave hit…not sure I understand that bit of marketing.
