  • The Wreck of the Portland: A Doomed Ship, A Violent Storm, and New England's Worst Maritime Disaster

    The SS Portland was a solid and luxurious ship, and its loss in 1898 in a violent storm with some 200 people aboard was later remembered as “New England’s Titanic.” The Portland was one of New England's largest and most luxurious paddle steamers, and after nine years' solid performance, she had earned a reputation as a safe and dependable vessel.In November 1898, a perfect storm formed off the New England coast. Conditions would produce a blizzard with 100 miles per hour winds and 60-foot waves that pummeled the coast. At the time there was no radio communication between ships and shore, no sonar to navigate by, and no vastly sophisticated weather forecasting capacity. The luxurious SS Portland, a sidewheel steamer furnished with chandeliers, red velvet carpets and fine china, was carrying more than 200 passengers from Boston to Portland, Maine, over Thanksgiving weekend when it ran headlong into a monstrous, violent gale off Cade Cod.It was never seen again.All passengers and crew were lost at sea.

  • Forgotten Noir, Vol. 1 (Portland Expose / They Were So Young)

    Actors: Ed Binns, Carolyn Craig, Virginia Gregg, Russ Conway, Lawrence Dobkin, Frank Gorshin, Scott Brady, Raymond Burr, Johanna Matz, Gert Frobe, Ingrid Stenn. It's all here, SIN by SIN, BRIBE by BRIBE, SHOCK by SHOCK – Blistering in the newspaper headlines! Nakedly shocking on the screen. This Forgotten Film Noir includes Portland Expose and They Were So Young. In the 1950's LIFE Magazine printed a blistering expose on the rampant sin, crime and Teamsters-controlled corruption that at the time had a stronghold on Portland, Oregon. Producer Lindsley Parsons seized upon the considerable publicity and assembled a cast of great character actors for the starring roles. Although the film crew was threatened with physical violence, the result is a dark and gritty filmed-on-location crime drama that contains considerable violence for a 1950's movie, most notably a violent rape scene with the Frank Gorshin character and a teenage girl. The second feature, They Were So Young: Five European models arrive in Rio de Janeiro and become trapped in a white slavery ring. An exciting crime melodrama with Raymond Burr at his villainous best! DVD Bonus & Features: Original Theatrical Trailers, Commentary by assistant director Lindsley Parson Jr, Original Advertising Materials, Bios: DVD-5, Dolby...
