I recently watched the video, Titanic : The Lost Footage. I notice 4 different clips of the ship on or about the dry-dock & one at the outfitting wharf. There was also the same footage on a video called, The Liners, though only 3 of these clips had been presented.

On the video, The Lost Footage, the clips where faded, while the same footage on the Liners video was a lot clearer and sharper. After reviewing them both a few times, I noticed that while comparing the same clips on the two different videos that they had been cropped. Most disappointing.
Does anyone know a place I could purchase these clips uncropped and in the best possible condition. Getting copies on a DVD format would also likely be a good start.
I notice Phil’s AVI’s 0n the site are excellent. (they would have looked brilliant if they had been 100% larger)

The Pathe archive is now online with free downloads of newsreels and the opportunity to buy copies. A search for "Titanic" reveals several relevant titles including the familiar film of Titanic in dock, captain smith etc.

I really recommend you to visit this site.

It you are interested in ocean liner this site is very good. I have downloaded films from several oceanliners during the last 24 h. E.g Titanic, Olympic, Britannic, Andra Doria, Mauretania, Aquantia, Queen Mary, Lusitania and more.
 
Is there a fee for joining because when i attempted to download it wanted Visa/Credit card information. I thought the samples were for Free.
Anyone help here?

It is free. You have to choose preview. The quality is a little bit lower than if you buy the clip. 128 kbits, but it's quite good even in fullscreen. There is a bug on the page. You have to choose that you are from UK or you can't download anything. At least when I tried.

I haven't seen that clip, but there is a clip of Mauretania going for the breakers. Please tell me if you find the one with Olympic.

Search for "olympic liner" and you will find a couple of clips from Olympic. There are many I haven't seen before. They are much better than the ones that use to be in different Titanicdocumentaries. Maybe those clips aren't so well known. One is when the ship is going to the breakers.

Hi.

I guess many of you didn't see this link that
was posted in "Titanic Movies"
http://www.britishpathe.com

This is the absolutely best source I have seen on the net with filmclips from the real Olympic and Titanic. You can download clips for free in quite good quality and there are several that I never have seen before. Much better than the ones that use to be in Titanicdocumentaries.

Go to the site and search for "olympic liner" You will find several clips. One of them is from 1935 when the ship was going to the breakers. You can also find films from the real Titanic.

Hope you find this link good. I have been stuck on the page all week. There are films from other ocean liners as well.

Best Regards, Mikael
 
Thanks for sharing them Mikael. Some of them were very nice. The shots of the Olympic sailing to the breakers, were quite unbelivable. She looked in pristine condition. On one film, I think it was when the Prince of Wales travelled on the Olympic shows a sign mounted before the gangway. I have always wondered why they wrote "stoop, mind your step" on the sign. Shoudn't it be "stop" mind your head. They had those boarding signs featured in the Titanic movie as well. What does "stoop" mean?

All the best,

Nigel
