A very good addition to the full-length film.
3 October 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This short came out before James Cameron's version of the Titanic story. However, because it was 35 years after the film debuted, I am actually surprised how many folks associated with the film that they got to participate in this 'making of' film. It consists, mostly, of allowing people associated with the film to talk about the process by which the film was made. The author of the book "A Night to Remember" talked at length--explaining the process he went through to write the book, talking with survivors to do much of his research, giving background material as well as the process by which the film was made. There also is some footage of the original film being made. It's particularly interesting because so much attention was given to getting the details correct--both by the author and the filmmakers.

This is obviously a low-budget 'making of' film. It lacks polish and appears to have been made on a minuscule budget. Yet, it also is very interesting. I think for folks with short attention-spans or who aren't in love with the subject matter, this will impact their viewing--and they are probably not likely to stick with it. However, it is worth your time--just allow yourself to enjoy this rather quiet film. It is rather fascinating throughout.
