The S.S. Jeremiah O'Brien is the home to the National Liberty Ship Memorial (www.ssjeremiahobrien.org) and she's considered the last surviving, fully functional, and most historically accurate World War II Liberty Ship.
The 441 foot S.S. Jeremiah O'Brien was an integral participant in helping James Cameron's major motion picture Titanic take home 3 of its 11 Academy Awards, including Best Sound, Best Sound Effects and Best Visual Effects.
Many interiors, sounds and visuals for James Cameron's Titanic were captured aboard the S.S. Jeremiah O'Brien, including her fully-operational triple expansion marine steam engine, which provided the dramatic massive and churning metallic parts of the famed White Star liner's engine room. In addition, the S.S. Jeremiah O'Brien also contributed her bow wave and wake to Cameron's epic film, which was multiplied and overlaid to make it look like it was generated by Titanic's massive three screws.
Docked at San Francisco's Pier 45, this unique marvel of World War II maritime engineering, celebrating the 65th Anniversary of her June 19, 1943 launch in 2008, offers unprecedented film, television and photography location opportunities, with stunning views of the San Francisco Bay, city skyline, Alcatraz, and Bay Bridges.
This is one of three short video of The S.S. Jeremiah O'Brien's fully-operational triple expansion marine steam engine taken during a recent cruise, on May 17, 2008. Look closely, and you'll recognize if from the amazing engine rooms scenes from Titanic.
