I saw this post awile ago made by a fellow named nunya buisness. It had some pretty good questions but noone ansewred it. I thought I would repost it. I haven't been able to locate it again. But I thought I would take his question and add a couple of my own. For you Titanic Buffs these questions should be a piece of cake.

1. How did lord pierre know Thomas Andrews?
2. What was bruce ismay's real First name?
3. What was captian Smith's middle name.
4.Under the poop deck their were 2 rooms. Which room was on the starboard side and which was on the port.
5.Even though robert ballard was the head of the titanic expedition, who really was the man who discovered the wreck?
6.what was the company that robert bALLARD FOUNDED?
7.What is the name of the rumered fourth and bigger sister?
8.Who discovered the britanic?
9.In what year did the Olympic finish her post war refit?
10.What was he name of the person that was born on the ship.

I'm willing to take a stab at it.

01. Thomas Andrews was Lord Pirrie's nephew.
02. His real first name was Joseph.
03. His middle name was John.
04. The third class General Room was on the starboard side; (?)
05. (?)
06. The J.A.S.O.N. Foundation of Education.
07. I have heard that this vessel was supposed to be smaller and called Germanic. That was later switched to Homeric; the ship was never built. I got this from a past thread on Other Ships and Shipwrecks.
08. Jacques Cousteau discovered her.
09. August, 1934.(?)
10. I have never heard of anyone actually being born on board Titanic, although several were conceived. I would like to know the source for this question.

There! I tried. A few lifelines would have been helpful!


Cheers,

Of course: The third class Smoking Room! How could forget that!? Of course, I just guessed on Olympic's refit date, since I had no idea. I new someone had been conceived on board, but the question was who was born on the ship. I suppose it was just worded wrong. Good job, Greg!

Jamie Farr rode on my boat the other night. We took only a short harbor cruise despite his interest in the revived waterfront of his hometown, Toledo. He was here to host the LPGA tournament named in his honor. No, we did not talk about Titanic.

He was in MASH with Lorretta Swit.
Swit was in Blake Edwards "SOB" with Robert Vaughn.
Robert Vaughn was in Man From Uncle with David Mcallum.

Jamie Farr was in, sorry, Cannonball Run, as was Roger Moore

Roger Moore was in The Persuaders, working for The Judge - who was played by Laurence Naismith

And Laurence Naismith was... well, do I really need to tell you ?

Boy, I watch a lot of right old guff...

I watched a show on TV that said the original version of the movie "the poseidon adventure" was playing at the time of the collision. Is this true, and is there a web site that gives the details of this irony?

Richard,
Most certainly not. There was no actual cinema to show this movie on in the first place, and I am not even fully sure it was made, or even thought of, at the time of the sinking.

Hope this helps, and by the way, welcome to the board!

As Alex says, there was no cinema on board, cinema being an entertainment for the lower classes in those days. The Poseidon Adventure of course is a modern movie. I'm no movie fan and I'll guess at the late 1960s.

A huge proportion of anything about Titanic on TV is pure equine ordure, like so much media coverage of maritime affairs.

Actually, I see it was 1972. Not too bad for somebody who has seen maybe five or six movies in cinemas in thirty years.
