Sorry my mistake,thought Youth Hostel was a YMCA.

Well, my hometown too! And that picture wasn't taken from "YMCA" but from a large balcony in front of the still existing local Youth Hostel.

Sorry was thinking of an oil rig movie around the same time by More, your right another excellent actor.

... and not to forget Anthony Hopkins. Nice movie with some wonderful takes of the ship in it. German title "Achtzehn Stunden bis zur Ewigkeit"...

The movie in 1974 was JUGGERNAUT! And sorry, there was no Roger Moore, but David Hemmings, Richard Harris and Omar Sharif. Very exciting movie, worth to see it several times!

Thanks Mike

The day she was used for a film as the Britannic starring Roger More, I read most of the extras regreted their choice of a sea voyage, the Channel was not in a good mood.

This photo was taken on 19th March 1969. From memory it was a trip taking local dignataries out for a days "jolly", prior to entering service.
