Today would be comedy legend Leslie Nielsen's 84th birthday. Sadly he passed away a few years ago but he is certainly not forgotten. Nielsen is now known as a comedian but spent a large part of his career as a serious dramatic actor. For this reason I have chosen The Poseidon Adventure for the Film Club, a classic disaster movie about a luxury liner that is flipped over in a dreadful storm, meaning that the survivors have to make their way to the top of the ship (which used to be the bottom).
The film stars the talents of Gene Hackman, Shelley Winters, Red Buttons, Ernest Borgnine and Roddy McDowell.
