On April 14, 1912, just before midnight, the “unsinkable” Titanic struck an iceberg. In less than three hours, it had plunged to the bottom of the sea, taking with it more than 1,500 of its 2,200 passengers. In his unforgettable rendering of Walter Lord’s book of the same name, the acclaimed British director Roy Ward Baker depicts with sensitivity, awe, and a fine sense of tragedy the ship’s last hours. Featuring remarkably restrained performances, A NIGHT TO REMEMBER is cinema’s subtlest and best dramatization of this monumental twentieth-century catastrophe.
This 1993 documentary by Ray Johnson features interviews with A NIGHT TO REMEMBER producer William MacQuitty and Walter Lord, the author of the book on which the film is based, as well as archival footage of the Titanic.
This documentary, produced for Swedish television in 1962, to mark the fiftieth anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic, is based on both the film A NIGHT TO REMEMBER and Walter Lord’s book of the same name, and features firsthand accounts from three survivors of the tragedy.
