Third Reich's Nazi propaganda epic about a heroic fictional German officer on board of the RMS Titanic. On its maiden voyage in April 1912, the supposedly unsinkable ship hits an iceberg in the Atlantic Ocean and starts to go down.
The story of the 1912 sinking of the largest luxury liner ever built, the tragedy that befell over two thousand of the rich and famous as well as of the poor and unknown passengers aboard the doomed ship.
George C. Scott,
The construction of the R.M.S. Titanic at the Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast against the background of union riots, political and religious conflicts, and a romance between a young ambitious engineer and an Italian immigrant.
An adventuresome young man goes off to find himself and loses his socialite fiancée in the process. But when he returns 10 years later, she will stop at nothing to get him back, even though she is already married.
Unhappily married and uncomfortable with life among the British upper crust, Julia Sturges takes her two children and boards the Titanic for America. Her husband Richard also arranges passage on the doomed luxury liner in order to let him have custody of their two children. Their problems soon seem minor when the ship hits an iceberg.Written by

Many of the sets (including the ship model) were reused for several other films after this such as Dangerous Crossing (1953) and in particular the dining room, cabins, grand staircase, lounge, radio room, boat deck, promenade deck and the deck chairs. Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953) used the ship model (remodified), the dining room walls, the lounge, the promenade deck, and the deck chairs again. A Blueprint for Murder (1953) the ship model (remodified), the dining room, promenade deck and deck chairs were all reused again. Then finally in Woman's World (1954), which also starred Clifton Webb only the dining room walls were used. The ship model is displayed at the Marine Museum of Fall River in Fall River, Massachusetts. See more »

While this movie can't hold a candle to the telling of the real story in "A Night To Remember", it is still much superior to James Cameron's bloated travesty. The original "Titanic" only won one Oscar but it was for a critical category that Cameron couldn't even get nominated for: screenplay. What the original "Titanic" lacks in accuracy it more than makes up for in a better fictional story with a more positive message of how disaster ultimately brings the warring elements of a divided family back together again, and allows them to see life in perspective with death at hand. A far cry from the shallow exercise of self-centeredness that is Rose's story!
