Abstract

April 15 2022 marks 110 years since the sinking of the Titanic. Over 1500 passengers and crew perished in one of the deadliest maritime disasters during peacetime. The story of the ship and its passengers has long since taken on mythic proportions and the story has been committed to film many times. Aficionados keen to commemorate the occasion should skip James Cameron’s clunky offering from 1997 and go straight to Roy Ward Baker’s highly regarded a Night to Remember from 1958 for a more measured appraisal of the disaster.
