Raise the Titanic 1980
The story revolves around a McGuffin called "byzanium", a rare (and fictional) uranium-like mineral of which 200 ounces are needed to power "The Sicilian Project", a U.S. anti-nuclear missile laser defense system destined to "make nuclear war obsolete". The only source of byzanium came from an early 20th century mine in Russia, by this time part of the Soviet Union.
A spy named Sid Koplin (Stewart Moss) sneaks into the USSR and locates the abandoned mine only to find it played out. Eventually another spy, free-lancer Dirk Pitt (Richard Jordan), learns that the byzanium was packed up and placed aboard the White Star Line's ill-fated RMS Titanic, which sank to the bottom of the Atlantic in 12,500 feet of water.
With the approval of Admiral James Sandecker (Jason Robards), Director of the National Underwater and Marine Agency, and support from the President, Pitt and physicist Dr. Gene Seagram (David Selby), developer of the Sicilian Project, oversee a massive effort by the U.S. Navy to raise the lost ocean liner to access her cargo hold and the vault containing the priceless mineral.
