Was there any thing about a tennis team or tennis players being aboard Titanic ?
Other than John Thayer ?
Just wondering if John Thayer, the tennis player from UPenn, ever met Gifford Rogers, the tennis player from Purdue on Titanic ? LOL.
Seriously, though, I wonder if the Gifford Rogers fictional character might have been based on John Thayer, the real character ?
Did John Thayer ever dine at The Captain's Table ?
If you will accept my apologies for this bit of trivial nonsense: ???
I had an idea for a sequel to the 1997 "Titanic".:
In later years, Mr. and Mrs. Benjamin Franklin Calvert (Ben and Rose ) meeet Mr.and Mrs.Gifford Rogers (Gifford and Annette) and the children of their families on the Maiden Voyage of RMS Queen Mary in May, 1936.
Rose and the twin teen-age boys, Thomas A. and Edward S., meet Gene Autry, Smiley Burnette, Kay Hughes and William Newell on the set at the Texas Centennial Exposition in Dallas for "The Big Show" in September, 1936.
They also meet Gloria Stuart and Shiirley Temple in Hollywod on the set of "Rebecca Of Sunnnybrook Farm" in 1938.
The last lines in "the movie":
Brock Lovett : "Is there anything you would like, Mrs.Calvert ?"
Old Rose : " Yes ! I would like to see my drawing !"
