The story of the 1912 sinking of the largest luxury liner ever built, the tragedy that befell over two thousand of the rich and famous as well as of the poor and unknown passengers aboard the doomed ship.
George C. Scott,
Unhappily married and uncomfortable with life among the British upper crust, Julia Sturges takes her two children and boards the Titanic for America. Her husband Richard also arranges passage on the doomed luxury liner in order to let him have custody of their two children. Their problems soon seem minor when the ship hits an iceberg.Written by

A powerful film that has it all. Watching this film seems to put you there, on the ship, as it happens. The characters are truly believable, not wooden or "modernized" as in other movie versions. Also impressive were the c. 1953 special effects. There are times when the huge model used in the movie looks more "real" than the effects featured in movies made about the disaster to this day. It seems unfair that someone can step in and make a new film of the same name (and, you will see, ideas) and seemingly pretend as though this great film never existed.
