A Night to Remember (1958) (bluray) 5/5
My favourite of all the movies about the sinking of the Titanic. Everyone working on this film tried to get it right and it was a fairly accurate rendition of the
events at that time. What was nice is on the Criterion bluray, they interviewed one of the few survivors left. I think her interview was conducted in 1990. Anyway she had quite vivid recollections of that night and distinctly said she saw the boat break in two. For the longest time it was ignored as being the faulty memory of a child but it did happen like that as was later proved. Ironically the movie depicts the boat sinking in one piece so someone didn't get the memo. I owned this on dvd shortly after it was released and unfortunately it developed the infamous dvd rot. I was heartbroken but vowed not to replace . I eventually weakened though and bought the bluray.
So this is the end of my challenge this month. Once again I didn't watch as many as I thought I would. Real life has a habit of intruding.
