Entering the industrial age with style

The DASA steam engine, made in 1889, consumed 150 kg of coal per hour. This was where the stoker worked, and it was an almost perfect example of bad working conditions. These conditions are exemplified by an excerpt from the film "The Death Ship", which was released in the mid-20th century and stars Horst Buchholz and Mario Adorf. Have you heard of these actors?
