Well done shipboard early talkie with outstanding sets.

This was the first talkie to extensively observe shipboard life and TITANIC owes everything to it. The plot is forgettable, but what is not, are the sets. The art direction was extensive in creating vast interiors of an ocean liner, right down to the bowels of the steam rooms, and a chase for a fugitive near the end of the film runs the gamut through them all. The art direction deservedly won an Oscar.
