The plot focuses on the romances of two couples upon the doomed ship's maiden voyage. Isabella Paradine (Catherine Zeta-Jones) is a wealthy woman mourning the loss of her aunt, who reignites a romance with former flame Wynn Park (Peter Gallagher). Meanwhile, a charming ne'er-do-well named Jamie Perse (Mike Doyle) steals a ticket for the ship, and falls for a sweet innocent Irish girl on board. But their romance is threatened by the villainous Simon Doonan (Tim Curry), who has discovered about the ticket and makes Jamie his unwilling accomplice, as well as having sinister plans for the girl.

Trivia

Famous American author Morgan Robertson published a novella titled The Wreck of the Titan in 1898. It is a fictional story about a large passenger liner that struck an iceberg while sailing in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. Ironically, the storyline in Robertson's book contains very striking resemblances to the events of the RMS Titanic, despite it being written fourteen years earlier. See more »

Goofs

After arriving in New York, there is a scene on balcony / walkway where the corner of the American flag shows. The flag has a field of stars staggered like in today's 50-star flag. The flag in 1912 would have been stars in a field of blue in straight rows. See more »

Quotes

Jamie Perse: Don't try to blackmail me. I could tell them a few things meself.
Simon Doonan: I've worked for the White Star Line for 12 years. I'm a trusted employee. Who do you think they're going to believe? Me, or Mr. Dickie, who isn't Mr. Dickie at all?

Watch this movie instead of Cameron's
11 March 2001 | by (in your lungs) – See all my reviews

If you're one of the few people who haven't seen James Cameron's "Titanic" (that stole all Oscars, including undeserved theme song in 1997), see this movie first. It's so much better than the mega-budget copycat. You'll notice how Cameron tried to imitate many of the scenes in this film and failed. Acting is superb, unlike DiCaprio and Winslet whose acting skills amount to very realistic spitting overboard. I was lucky and saw this movie on TV before I saw Cameron's "Titanic" and immediately could see the difference which was not in favor of Cameron. I can't believe that the guy who directed "Terminator", "True Lies" and many other of my favorite films actually was behind this cinematic disaster.

Anyway. I'll comment on that movie later. Right now I wanna tell you this. Perhaps these guys didn't have a billion dollar budget to play with, but the end product came out perfect. Catherine Zeta-Jones is awesome; her character is complex, vulnerable, and endearing. You absolutely fall in love with the characters and leave your modern life behind and become part of theirs. At least for the duration of the film... How long is that? I didn't notice. Time flies when you have a good movie to watch.
