How ‘the dirtiest, sorest, most bedraggled cast in movie history’ made The Poseidon Adventure

  • When a young Ben Stiller told Gene Hackman that he adored The Poseidon Adventure, a movie that inspired him to be a filmmaker, the grizzled veteran actor fixed him with a stare and muttered, “Oh yeah.
