Superior in almost every way to Titanic, this stunning factual account of the 1912 maritime catastrophe is perhaps the prototype of the disaster film, providing an acutely detailed sense of the human scale of the disaster with over 200 speaking parts. Much of the perspective centers around Second Officer Lightoller (Kenneth More), whose decisive lifeboat restrictions—”women and children only”—became the stuff of legend.
