John Jacob Astor did not have Lincolnesque whiskers as portrayed by David Janssen in the film. Astor's only facial hair was a mustache. The reason for this error is that passenger Stanley May or his brother was famously photographed at the London train station, Waterloo, on April 10 1912 where the Titanic passengers took the Boat Train to the ship at Southampton. The Mays, both of whom had whiskers, traveled as far as Queenstown Ireland, and got off. John Jacob Astor and his wife boarded the Titanic at Cherbourg in France, not in England. See more »

This take on the "Titanic" falls into the "docudrama" category with only a few invented characters; most of the others are the canonical Titanic personnel. I particularly liked the dramatic device of having two second class passengers acting as a sort of "Greek chorus," commenting on events there, above and below. Most Titanic films concentrate on first and sometimes third classes, but virtually everyone ignores "the middle." By using mainly historical characters, the story has a real poignancy, but more focus than on the more famous "A Night to Remember."
