The film is a German-language version of the 1929 film Atlantic made at Elstree Studios by British International Pictures.[1] Following the introduction of sound films, leading film companies attempted to cater to different markets by producing Multi language versions of their films. Atlantic was released in four versions: English, French, German and Silent. The film was the first full-talking film to be released in Germany, where it was a major hit. It is based on the play The Berg by Ernest Raymond which was based on the Titanic disaster.
