People should be grateful we got to witness another Titanic movie in our era .
he did try to make it as accurate as he could, he said, off of what they knew at the timePersonally, I liked the film for what it was.
But we are dealing with Hollywood and money. The studios often take a real event, maybe twist it here and there, and add a story with fictional characters.
Look at all the stuff coming out regarding 911.
its on youtubePersonally I think of "Titanic" (1997 and 1953 ) and "A Night To Remember" (1958) as sorts of stage plays.
"Titanic" (1997) ? So what ? If the plot and actors leave a bit to be desired, what a terrific set of props on the stage !
As for "Titanic" (1953) ? Just the opposite...the stage settings and "historical accuracy" do leave a bit to be desired but the actors do come up with some snappy lines.
"A Night to Remember" (1958) ?. A better blend of both acting and "historical accuracy " (give or take a few ) and sets. If only it was in color !
Preface all of the above with "IMHO". LOL.
I will have to take another look at it to be sure........but....Will
I'm sure you look Awesome to use a phrase from my 1980's-90's youth. I'm sure Will, you could hold your own any day of the week against those prima donnnas
That's a thought. Frankly though Hays was short and we want to be historically accurate. Film Actors are mostly petite anyways.
I agree! ANTR is really good, even better in color. Always thought smith looks a bit younger, but thats just meYes, there is a colorized version of "A Night To Remember". Most of it is fairly well done but there are some "rough spots" as some critics have remarked. But overall IMHO it's worth the watching.
And I don't consider the 1997 "Titanic" or any of the other "Titanic" movies as "stupid".
You just have to take the bad or "stupid" parts, but they all do have at least one redeeming "smart" part.
I can't recall ever seeing a movie that didn't have at least one "stupid" part and at least one "smart" part in it....And I am a sort of an inveterate "nit-picking nit-picker"…......LOL
"If you get a good omelette, who cares about the chicken ?"
Just in remarking..... I don't remember ever seeing sloppy sailors looking like one of those in the "Caine Mutiny" during my admittedly short sea duty in the USN. How revolting ! How insulting ! ;-)
