Film footage of the Laurentic after collision

Here is footage of the damage to both the Laurentic II and the Blue Star Liner Napier Star after the bow of the Napier Star plowed into the Laurentic in 1935. Both ships are featured equally -- I'd like to see better closeups of the damage to the White Star Liner but what you see is bad enough. Cunard White Star lost six sailors in this collision.
