SS United States, Lady In Waiting
By Big Ship Films, LLC
Designed to serve as a secret weapon in the cold war, disguised as a luxurious passenger liner, the SS United States was the pride of America during her flawless service career from 1952 to 1969.
The brainchild of United States Lines president, John M. Franklin, and the 20th Century's preeminent naval architect, William Francis Gibbs, this completely fireproof ship was the largest passenger vessel ever constructed in the U.S., and it remains the record-holding speed champion of the North Atlantic.
DVD Widescreen format includes more than 30 minutes of special bonus features, deleted scenes, and more.
