Being the UK's historian on "Raise The Titanic" of which I supplied (at the last minute) all that is seen in the 'special features' section, I can say that there is very little out there on this movie. There was no "official" making-of documentary made for this film, except for a promotional sales gimmick put together in 1980. Sadly this could not be used due to time contraints. No deleated scenes exsist anymore for this film, the original 12 minute sinking footage is currently in the hands of a private collector who will not release it and any "behind-the-scenes" footage (again) could not be used due to time constraints and copyright.
Before I became involved with the dvd, all that was going to be seen on the dvd was the film. And with the VERY little time I had to put together material from my private collection (including images not seen until now), the outcome for this release was far better than it was originally planned.
However, there is a possibility of a future release in a couple of years time of a "Special Edition" version of "Raise The Titanic", which will feature a lot more material from my private collection.

The film DO have good plot, and there is good acting. They're trying to retreive the ship's supposed asset Titanium, and we will see how they try to raise her. This just speaks for itself and to me a great plot! I bought the VHS because I like to watch 80's films on VHS. Just 4 plus star movie really. And recommended to any Titanic buff.
The film became more popular much after it went on cinema. Years after, so Cussler did get his investment payed off. As for me, however i don't think to raise the ship is great idea, but still, the wheel...
Just go buy it. Great film!!

It seemed a good film when I first saw it many years ago, but in the light of what we now know regarding the Titanic, it has fallen into the category of old Sci-fi. Read morePublished 3 months ago by chad
