Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Last Voyage

The "Claridon" is in the middle of the Pacific ocean when a fire starts in the boiler room. The crew manages to stop it but a boiler explodes afterwards. While Captain Robert Adams doesn't want to alarm the passengers by asking them to go near the lifeboats, Laurie Henderson, whose cabin was located right over the boiler that exploded, is hurt and her legs are stuck under a heavy piece of metal. Her husband Cliff understands that only a welding torch could help him free Laurie and he goes to the engine room to find one.

There, the mechanical engineers try to stop the water that entered the boat behind steel doors and don't have time to help Cliff. Finally, one of them, Lawson, takes pity on him and carries the welding torch to Laurie's cabin. Unfortunately, the torch is out of order. Captain Robert Adams, when he learns that water can not be contained anymore, calls a boat for help and asks the passengers to leave the "Claridion". Lawson tells the leaving passengers not to forget to ask for a welding torch as soon as they are safe. But the "Claridion" is sinking and Laurie Henderson begs Cliff to leave her in order to save his own life. Written and directed by Andrew L. Stone in 1959.
