Atlantic is a 1929 British-made German language drama film directed by Ewald André Dupont and starring Fritz Kortner, Elsa Wagner and Heinrich Schroth. 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 multiple-language versions of their films. Atlantic was released in four versions: English, French, German and silent, for cinemas not yet converted to the new format. The film was the first fully talking film to be released in Germany, where it was a major hit. It is based on the 1929 play The Berg by Ernest Raymond which itself was based on the Titanic disaster.
