      Wonderful detective work you all!

      I had no idea she, the Sunward, had already been broken up, that totally blew my mind right now.

        Does anyone know the story of the real ship, used in the movie SS Martha?

        A fantastic movie... imagine how fun it would be to re-shoot this whole movie again today, with for example Nordstjernen after her retirement.

          Not bad...it took almost a year to figure this out. The ship used as SS Martha was S/S ASLAUG. I can't read the article but it can be found at...

            Well, but preferrably not scrapping good Nordstjernen immediately after shooting the movie, as they did with Aslaug / Margarita...

              Yes, I agree... re-shooting the film, but everything except from the scrapping-part!

                          It could be the Normandie, not really sure... How about Paris (didn't she sink too?)

                              The ship in post 207 is the Normandy quite a while after the fire (About 1 1/2 years after). To help lighten the ship for re-floating, the stacks and upper structures were removed. The hull was then towed to dry dock for assessment and possible repairs to convert her to an aircraft and transport ferry. We all know the rest of the story.
