I think thats the one!Titanic is what i had in my mind,but wasn't sure,as it was my drunken teenage years!

I was given some of the ships lanterns that were used in the film,so thanks for clearing that up for me.

Yes, all the films mentioned on this thread so far had scenes of the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company vessels.

The Manxman was, as Helles said used in "Chariots of Fire". Was shown at the old/real Woodside landing stage. Everyone was boarding the "Ferry to Calais" !
