"We may be having sand for supper."

As hard as it may be for some to believe, there were films about the sinking of the R.M.S. Titanic prior to James Cameron's 1997 Academy Award winner. These films have taken different points of view of the disaster, with some closely adhering to the factual record (1958's A Night to Remember) and others using the sinking of the ship as an secondar... read more
View all Titanic reviews
Description: A Hollywood retelling of the tragic sinking of the "unsinkable" British luxury liner H.M.S. "Titanic," which struck an iceberg April 15, 1912, and sank on its maiden voyage, killing over 1500 people. Only 712 of the passengers, using 19 lifeboats, survived. There were a number of famous people traveling on the ship who died, among them, John Jacob Astor and Benjamin Guggenheim. Taking a personal approach, the film focuses on the Sturges, a family traveling on the luxury liner. Julia Sturges had booked passage on the ship with her two children after leaving her husband, Richard. He, however, discovered her pla ... (more)

These films have taken different points of view of the disaster, with some closely adhering to the factual record (1958's A Night to Remember) and others using the sinking of the ship as an secondary event to a human story (James Cameron's Titanic). Jean Negulesco's 1953 version of Titanic falls into the latter category. Yet, it's hard to judge 1953's Titanic after viewing the 1997 version since Cameron's gem represented a perfect marriage of the ship's luxury, the disaster, and an affecting melodrama worthy of the ship's undying legend. While Negulesco's rendering has its moments and features a ” read more

Films About The Sinking of the RMS Titanic (9 movies items)

" Country: USA Directed by: Jean Negulesco Starring: Clifton Webb, Barbara Stanwyck, Robert Wagner, Audrey Dalton. "We may be having sand for supper." BACKGROUND: 20th Century Fox finally got around to realizing David O. Selznick's plan to give the Titanic story the full Hollywood treatment that it so richly deserved and which was long overdue. Titanic was a lavish docudrama that mixed fictional and real characters and opened in Hollywood on April 14, exactly 41 years after the disaster. The fil"
