Abandon Ship

Jun 6, 2003
I just watched "Abandon, Ship" AKA "Seven Waves Away" in UK, a 1956 release. It was a riveting, well acted film about an overcrowded lifeboat where the leader has to jettison ill passengers to lighten the load. At the end, it was noted that it was based on a true story & the Tyrone Power was given a light sentence of 6 months considering the circumstances. Does anyone know which disaster this film was based on?

Oh, I remember this movie, I watched it when I was about eight. I really liked it. I thought it was sad though that the two parents and to leave their boy.
