The Poseidon Adventure

Trivia: The scene where Belle (Shelly Winters) dives into the water was actually rehearsed by having her jump into the water. She decided to dive in while filming the scene and that take was used.

Trivia: The look of the set for the upside down engine room was so real, the actors refused to climb anything, fearing that it would fall. The set designer and builders had to climb it first to prove it would hold.

Visible crew/equipment: When Rev. Scott swims up the first stairwell, after pushing aside the dead crew member, as his head comes up the shaft, you can see, very quickly, the flippers of a crewmember swimming out of the shot behind him. (01:22:55)
