[QUOTE="Mary S. Lynn, post: 150392, member: 200444"] My apologies for getting off-track, Bob - it was not my intention. I was more interested in the contracting and commissioning of British ships pre-WWI, and the designations of title. Getting back to movies: -Did Fleet ever confirm whether the initial iceberg call was "dead" ahead or "right" ahead? -Some movies portray the Wallace Hartley-led ship's orchestra containing brass and woodwinds with more than 4 members. Was this the case, or was it actually a 4-man string orchestra? -Some movies portray Benjamin Guggenheim's "We are dressed in our finest (my valet and I) and are prepared to go down like gentlemen" statement, while not mentioning that he was aboard with his mistress. What ever happened to her, and why was she not mentioned in any movie? -One movie (ANTR) has Isidore Strauss calling his wife "Rachael". Wasn't her name Ida? -A couple of movies portray Harold Bride hanging on to Jack Phillips on a collapsible. Phillips subsequently dies, and Bride lets him slip into the water. Was this just dramatic effect, or did Phillips actually make it on to a collapsible? -There was a REALLY BAD made for TV movie (Titanic mini-series) in which "Alice Cleaver" was a nanny for the Alison family of Montreal. The wrong Alice Cleaver (Mary Alice) was portrayed, but the real Alice Cleaver (Alice Mary) did save the life of Trevor Alison. Did the producers of this mini-series ever hear anything from the real Alice Cleaver's family about the inaccurate portrayal? -Did E.J. Smith really begin his career at sea as a cabin boy? Those cabin-boy-to-Captain stories are pretty rare! Just a few of my movie questions, Bob, and thanks for reminding me where I was! Side note: You sound luckier than I was in your teaching field! Adults!!...I'm jealous. Yes - English (British) Literature. "The drought of Marche hath pierced to the roote..." [/QUOTE]
In which year did the Titanic sail?
