WWII Movie where ship is sunk by Nazi U-Boat and people drown in elevator

I saw a film many years ago about a passenger boat of some sort being sunk by a Nazi submarine. The only scene I remember is some women stuck in a elevator that fills up with water and they drown.

Do you know when this movie was approx. made? When did you see it?
Also, are you sure it was WWII? Can we exclude movies about passenger ships sunk by U-Boats in World War I (like the Lusitania)?
Hi casspir.

No, I do not know when the movie was made, sorry.
I am certain it was WWII, I have researched and come to a conclusion that it cannot be from WWI.

Thanks for your help :-)
And what about the movie I suggested above in my comment, The Sinking of the Laconia? You can watch it on Youtube, see the above links. Could it be the movie you are looking for?
I know you said it couldn't be from WW1, but the scene you describe sounds just like a scene in "The Sinking Of The Lusitania: Terror At Sea"(2007 TV Movie)
You can watch the full movie here, and those scenes are at about 55:02 and 1:02.50
