Titanic (TV miniseries)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Titanic was a television movie that premiered in 1996. Titanic follows several characters on board the RMS Titanic when it sinks on its maiden voyage.

Tagline: The story so few lived to tell.

[edit]
Main cast
George C. Scott - Captain Edward J. Smith
Marilu Henner - Mrs. Margaret "Molly" Brown
Peter Gallagher - Wynn Park
Catherine Zeta-Jones - Mrs. Isabella Paradine
Tim Curry - Simon Doonan
Eva Marie Saint - Hazel Foley
Roger Rees - J. Bruce Ismay
[edit]
Plot summary
Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow.
The Titanic has three different storylines. Mrs. Isabella Paradine is traveling on the Titanic to see her husband. On the Titanic, she meets Wynn Park, her ex-husband. She falls in love with him again, sending her husband a telegram saying that they can't be together anymore. When the ship starts sinking Isabella has to leave Wynn reluctantly.

Also in first class are the Allison family, a real family who traveled on the actual ship, returning home to Montreal with their two small children and new nurse, Alice Cleaver. They notice something wrong with her, and a maid asks her if she had been in Cairo last month. She denies it, because when she lived there she killed her baby. When the Titanic starts sinking Alice Cleaver panics and leaves with the Allison's baby, Trevor, and gets into a lifeboat. The family doesn't know, and they refuse to leave the ship without their baby.

In third–class, Jamie Pierce steals a ticket to get on board. He manages to become friends with the ship's purser Simon Doonan, who is a robber. Jamie falls in love with Osa Ludvigson and they spend time on board together. However, she is raped by Doohan, and she doesn't trust anybody anymore. When the ship hits the iceberg, Jamie can't convince Osa to go into a lifeboat, but in the end she does.

Produced in advance of the imminent James Cameron film on the same topic, the TV version, which was originally aired over two nights, manages to recreate faithfully some elements of the ship, but also included a number of historical inaccuracies:

Alice Cleaver was not a mad, insane child murderer as portrayed. She was confused with another woman with the same name. The real Alice Cleaver went on to be a recluse rarely talking about the Titanic until she died in the 70s.
First Officer William Murdoch did not commit suicide or shoot another passenger. (This is a longtime Titanic myth that also appeared in the Cameron film.)
Fourth Officer Joseph Boxhall did not go down with the ship. In fact he went on to have a successful career in the Royal Navy and the White Star Lines rival company. He then went onto be a technical advisor on A Night to Remember and to be one of the foremost authorities of the disaster.
One of the restaurants is shown to be a two-level facility with a balcony. No such restaurant existed on Titanic.
The film was released to home video soon after the release of the Cameron film.

This is a realy good film!*****


It has lots of details although as it was made on a small buget the effects are somewhat drab in places, This film is one of the better although my 2nd favorate as I love the 1953 version more than any.

As for The Statment
First Officer William Murdoch did not commit suicide or shoot another passenger. (This is a longtime Titanic myth that also appeared in the Cameron film.)


I Don't see how anyone can make such a statement on such a subject that has now been beleved Myth/Fact for so long, with little way of proving it one way or the other I feel this will be one of the Titanic legands that will always remain undecided.

I don't really remember this. I just recently found the video recording that I done of the movie. I think I'll re-watch it. LOL! I've been a really big fan of the Titanic since I was like three years old. I would really like to see the wreak of the Titanic someday. I just hope that I get to see it before it caves in on itself. That is going to be really depressing.

For those of you in the United States that want this miniseries on DVD, do not blow $30 buying it on Amazon.

I bought my copy from the 5 dollar movie bin at Wall-Mart.

It is a different DVD format than the one on Amazon (the cover is different too), but I was glad to find it because I did not think that sorry version was worth $ 30.

Since I have bought it I have seen it at many places that sell cheap DVDs (such as Wallgreens).
