Quotes

John Rool: Hello, Tate-Hughes. Seen your women off?
Freddie Tate-Hughes: No. I haven't. Neither wife nor daughter will go. The wife won't leave her luggage or the dresses she bought in Paris. Betty's merely rude.
John Rool: Better make 'em go.
Freddie Tate-Hughes: I can't. They won't listen to me. They're huffy about something.
John Rool: Mrs Lilly, hmmm?
Freddie Tate-Hughes: Something like that.
John Rool: Anyhow, if you still love your wife and daughter, you'd better get them to the boats without delay.
Freddie Tate-Hughes: Why? The ship's quite safe, isn't it?
John Rool: Oh, yes... for a couple of hours.

Well handled and dramatic, despite unfamiliarity with a new medium.
22 March 2001 | by (Vancouver, Canada) – See all my reviews

How interesting that E.A. Dupont who created one of germany's most memorable silent films (VARIETY) also helmed one of England's first talkies. Obviously he was uneasy with the medium of talking pictures, note how the first 6 minutes of this film is entirely visual. Most of the cast had stage experience, you can tell because they over-exaggerate their lines and cannon out the words like they were playing to the back row. Still this is a well paced dramatic film and the final few minutes have an impact that can stand on their own alongside the later versions, TITANIC and A NIGHT TO REMEMBER. (I am deliberately excluding James Cameron's film with its budget that would have fed a 3rd World country for 10 years and its plethora of computer FX.)
