The sets of the film were based on Titanic's blueprints and the only existing photograph of the telegraph room. The designs of the ship show a door leading from the telegraph room to the shared bedroom. However, Harold Bride mentioned that the Titanic's construction had been delayed and was so behind schedule that they never had time to install a proper door, and thus a green curtain was used instead. This is shown in the film and is often incorrectly regarded as an error. See more »
Captures the suspense and emotion while still remaining historically accurate.
This short film is great for those of us who are interested in the historical event, as well as for those who want to feel really involved in the story. The character portrayal is excellent. The rolls of Harold Bride and John Phillips are totally believable and their dialog seems to come completely naturally as it would have in the actual event. You really get a good sense of what the characters were like as well as who they were historically. You also get a good sense of the working relationship between the two. This really helps you to relate to the characters and tie you into the plot, and makes it that much more suspenseful later on in the film. Throw it all together with a great set, some explosions, and special effects and you'll feel like you were on the ship. Spot on ya mates!
