What critics, educators, and historians say about

SS United States: Lady in Waiting


 “One of the finest documentaries of its kind ever made.”

          - William H. Miller, author of SS United States: Speed Queen of the Seas
“This is an enormously entertaining – and educational – film about one of the greatest ships ever built.

          - Maritime Executive Magazine
“This is an excellent film about one of the greatest liners ever. I would highly recommend it…”

          - Nigel Lawrence, Shipping Today & Yesterday
”Director Robert Radler’s engaging documentary features interviews with celebrity passengers (including Walter Cronkite), naval historians, and enthusiasts, who recall the rich history of the SS United States, while also discussing current efforts to save it… DVD extras include expanded interviews, celebrity anecdotes, rare footage of the maiden voyage, and a photo gallery. Highly recommended.”

          – C. Block, Video Librarian (Volume 24, Issue 1)

“This praiseworthy history of one of the most important ships in U.S. history is very highly recommended for marine and history collections.”

          - Tom Budlong, Library Journal
“Lovingly crafted…”

          – Dwain Thomas, School Library Journal
”In this fond tribute, former passengers (including journalist Walter Cronkite and artist LeRoy Neiman), employees, ship enthusiasts, and others recall the heyday of ocean travel... Fascinating for ship and history buffs and anyone who enjoys glimpsing the glamorous past.”
