    S.O.S Titanic Uncut

    For years, I've heard tales of the original version of S.O.S Titanic, but as a person born in '94, I never had the pleasure of watching it for myself in its original format. There are ancient posts from the turn of the millennium with people on this forum having copies of their own, but as...

    How come Harold Cottam declined to play himself in this film?

    I read that Harold Cottam was offered a role to play as himself in this film, but he declined the offer and the part went instead to Alec McCowen. Why did Harold Cottam decline? Were the memories of the sinking still painful to him?

    Box Office Gross

    What was this film's budget and its total box office gross? Was it a box office success in Britain and the United States? And how much was its gross compared to the 1953 and 1997 Titanic films?

    Did the Titanic disaster help out the development of cinema?

    Every film about the Titanic seems to be groundbreaking in some way for cinema. The first feature-length films about the disaster were Saved from the Titanic and In Nacht Und Eis, which were both released a few months after the sinking. The first sound film about the disaster was 1929's...

    OK, Technically, This May Not Be "General Titanica"...

    This early newsreel of Titanic's sister ship Olympic is fantastic! I literally gasped when I saw some of the footage. It is as close as we will ever get to seeing Titanic steam into New York City. Yeah, I know this post should be in some White Star sub-folder below, and somebody's probably...

    Why was some footage from the 1943 German film used in this film?

    According to Wikipedia: Why was this footage used in A Night to Remember? Were the filmmakers too lazy to create new model shots for these particular scenes in the film?

    What is the ocean liner in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button?

    It looks like a French line vessel. The scene is set in the 1930s. Here is a GIF link of it, which looks like it includes behind the scenes CGI of it, and the scene in the film, which is set in fog.

    Atlantis (1913) Film

    Nothing Titanic related, but just a interesting film for curious film / maritime fans... Apparently the Harland & Wolff built ship Rotterdam (1897) when later the C.F. Tietgen of the Scandinavian America Line was used as a film set for the Danish film Atlantis (1913) based off a book by...

    Titanic and The Ottoman Lieutenant (2017): What have they done?!?

    By chance, a Youtube trailer with the "can't skip the ad" function appeared advertising the film: "The Ottoman Lieutenant" (2017) and I glance up casually from my Titanic Research to see a CGI model of the Titanic being used for the film! A brief lookup of the full trailer revealed the...

    Was this scene in the film, and were there ANY Californian related scenes in the film?

    Hi. I am in a dispute with someone, about this. I have seen "Titanic" by James Cameron. I found this "Deleted" scene. Someone claims they have an "original" Titanic film with the following "deleted scene." I have seen this film many times. In fact, when I saw it in the theaters in 1997...

    The Unsinkable Molly Brown

    There is a short Titanic sequence in the 1964 Debbie Reynolds musical The Unsinkable Molly Brown. I saw it at a rerun in 1967 and that was what started my interest in the Titanic saga.

    The most accurate portrayal of Mr Andrews in the movies?

    Hi all. There has been a lot of Titanic movies, which included Thomas Andrews, or, should I say in a polite way, Mr Andrews. There were some as well,where Andrews was omitted, but that is not the subject of this poll. Which movie offered in your opinion the most accurate portrayal of...

    A Night To Remember On Blu-Ray

    I received the new Criterion Blu-Ray version of ANTR, and the result is an impressive upgrade over the previous release. The transfer is outstanding and this time the sequence snipped in the previous release of the "British" version (but which was included in the American version released on...
