Movies and Videos

The Secrets of the Titanic
National Geographic Video. 1986. Distributed by Vestron Video.
This describes the location of the Titanic's final resting place by Dr. Robert Ballard and a team of researchers
Narrated by Martin Sheen.

A Night to Remember
1958. Starring Kenneth Moore and David McCallum.
Produced by William McQuitty, based on the book of the same name by Walter Lord.
NOTE:  The most accurate portrayal of the wreck until the 1997 Titanic, also available on laser disc and CD-ROM.
A point of interest is the lifeboat used in this movie was built for it by Second Officer Lightoller's son.

Return to the Titanic
Hosted by Telly Savalas
A French expedition retrieves some artifacts from the Titanic and displays them on live television.
NOTE: This is a real dog and pony show, well worth NOT watching.

Titanic: Treasures of the Deep
CBS Special. 1992
A joint Canadian, Russian, and American team dive the Titanic using two submersibles.
Narrated by Walter Cronkite.

Barbara Stanwyck, Clifton Webb, Robert Wagner.
Fictionalized account of the sinking of the Titanic. An excellent movie that won one
of several Academy Awards nominations, it is not an accurate portrayal of the disaster.

Titanic (1997) Collide with Destiny
The most accurate movie ever made of Titanic, not yet available on video.

Titanic: Anatomy of a Disaster (1997)
(TV Documentary)
NOTE: Your's truly actually made the TV in this.

Titanic (1996)
(TV mini-series)
This show got excellent ratings the first night but most viewers switched off to something else the next.
That should tell you about the quality.

Titanica (1992)
An Imax presentation.
Well worth watching. Great wreck-site footage.

Raise the Titanic (1980)
Total fiction, the model of the ship resembles the Aquitania (Cunard liner) more than Titanic.
Reasonably good international espionage movie, lousy Titanic movie, horrible editing.
The novel it is based on by Clive Cussler is not much better. When one
considers that this was made by a British company one expects better.

SOS Titanic (1979)
Made for TV movie that tells the story using one couple in each of the three classes and centers mainly on
Lawrence Beesly, a second class passenger. Deals with real people and uses real names rather than a fictional framing story.
A lot of poetic license is taken and many myths are used to enhance the show. Still worth watching.

Titanic (1943)
A German propaganda movie made during World War 2 showing the brave German office taking charge of the ship when the
cowardly English botch things. I am trying to get a copy of this from the National Archives.
Some footage from this was used in the movie "The Unsinkable Molly Brown" (below)

Saved from the Titanic (1912)
Released May 14th 1912, 29 days after the sinking and stars Dorothy Gibson who was not only an actress but also
a survivor of Titanic. She co-wrote the screenplay, starred in the movie and to top it off wore the clothes she wore during the sinking.  Sadly no known copies of this movie exist.
