Default Re: Krasin Icebreaker 1930s

As I vaguely recall there was a movie made of the "incident" with the crash of the airship and the ultimate rescue of survivors. The icebreaker "played" herself in this movie.

I saw it on tv long ago; does anyone remember this movie and its name and cast? DFO

To answer my own questions: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Red_Tent_(film)

I totally forgot that James Bond, err...Sean Connery was in the film, but dimly remembered Peter Finch and of course Claudia....she stood out more than the KRASIN. Of course the history of that ship is really quite amazing! If one was in the area, a visit to her would certainly be worthwhile!!
