Synopsis by Sally Barber
Originally produced for television, the video series Secrets of the Unknown invites you into the world of the bizarre, strange, and unusual. From ninjas who are said to transform into panthers, to the peculiar myths and rituals surrounding King Tut's tomb, to Hitler's occult connections, these documentaries provide a rich visual showcase for unexplained phenomena. The program Secrets of the Unknown: The Lusitania explores the mysteries surrounding the most dramatic World War I conflict over German submarine warfare. A British cargo and passenger ship, the Lusitania, was hit by a German torpedo in May 1915. The cause of subsequent explosions within its hull remains a puzzle. Theories suggest the ship may have been carrying contraband ammunition. Actor Edward Mulhare, known for his role in The Ghost and Mrs. Muir, hosts this investigation into the catastrophic sinking of the Lusitania.
