NIGHT TO REMEMBER, A
starstarstarstar
A NIGHT TO REMEMBER treats in brilliant, semi-documentary style the night of April 14, 1912, when the luxury liner Titanic struck an iceberg and sank, taking 1,513 passengers and crew members (out of a total complement of 2,224 on board) to the bottom of the ocean on on the fifth day of her maiden voyage from Southampton to New York. Although Kenneth More is ostensibly the star, this multi-layered production boasts more than 200 speaking parts. Sticking pretty closely to the facts, Baker and Ambler have constructed a startling drama, uncluttered by fictional sub-plots. Made for a mere $1,680,000, A NIGHT TO REMEMBER looks much more expensive, with superb costumes and sets. Though far superior to Fox's TITANIC of 1953, this critically acclaimed film met with only lukewarm box-office support. leave a comment
