Waverly Woman Who Survived Titanic Sinking Praises Movie

A Waverly woman who survived the catastrophic sinking of the White Star liner Titanic in the North Atlantic April 14, 1912, agrees to the authenticity of the motion picture “Titanic,” and praises it as “ good entertainment for everyone.”

Mrs. Arthur Cook recently was brought to New York City for the premiere of the motion picture along with numerous other survivors of the sinking. She was entertained at the Sherry-Netherlands Hotel by 20th Century-Fox, producer of the film which opens its area showing this morning at 11 o’clock at the Comerford Theater.

While at the premiere in New York City, Mrs. Cook met one of the survivors, a man 41 years of age who was thrown into a lifeboat during the ship disaster. He was 10 weeks old at the time. His mother also survived the sinking.

Lead roles in the firm [sic] are taken by Barbara Stanwyck and Clifton Webb
