SS United States: Lady in Waiting is a 2008 documentary film about the famed ocean liner SS United States, which was in service from 1952 to 1969. It features interviews of many past crew members and passengers about the background, construction, service and life on board the SS United States. The film also focuses on the lighting up of the vessel by artist Robert Wogan while also showing footage of her glamorous years in service. The documentary also includes excerpts of footage Wogan filmed while exploring the engine room of the United States, all of which the artist later released on a 55-minute-long DVD. A charity screening of the documentary was held on March 11, 2010, the money raised going to the cause of saving the endangered SS United States.
