I personally feel that Cameron's depiction of Lightoller was horrendous and a smudge on an otherwise fine film. Anyone agree? I mean come on, he is shown the entire film as being scarred, sweaty and stupid. In real life?? Scared and sweaty maybe but stupid?!?! it just really gets under my skin when Andrews is telling him that the boats are leaving half empty and quivering Lights acts all incompetant. For the senior most surviving officer, a man who we KNOW did many great and brave things that night and others, his portrail was a disgrace to his memory. Just an opinion.
