A Night to Remember (1958)

From this you can see where many good ideas of the new Titanic were taken. This film was an epic of its time and at the end puts a positive twist on the story explaining how things have changed after the Titanic and lifeboats are now for all and they have the navy monitoring icebergs to prevent such accidents.

More's role was well written and serves as an inspiring example of idealism, initiative and leadership. I also enjoyed the noble man who did not panic in the sight of death. I did not know that there was a ship "Americana" nearby who did not respond to the calls. It makes it all the more tragic that they even could see it happening and dismissed the rockets etc. The comparative priorities of the passengers was also insightful and it showed the materialistic fashions of the day for the rich.
