Overview

In 1912, the H.M.S. Titanic was the largest ocean liner built to date, and its designers had incorporated several features they believed would make the ship virtually unsinkable. However, the Titanic never returned from its maiden voyage; after striking an iceberg, the ship slowly sank to the bottom on the ocean, with most of its passengers meeting a watery grave in the freezing ocean. The 1996 made-for-television movie Titanic tells the story of how this disaster came to befall the great ship, and what happened to the passengers on board -- both the wealthy socialites in first class and the poor immigrants in steerage. The cast includes George C. Scott as Capt. Smith, Peter Gallagher as Wynn Park, Eva Marie Saint as Hazel Foley, Tim Curry as Simon Doonan, Marilu Henner as Molly Brown, and Catherine Zeta-Jones (before she became a major star in The Mask Of Zorro and Entrapment) as Isabella Paradine.

A re-edit of a CBS mini-series. Titanic (1996) This film has a very good story, much better than some films about the same subject. It follows the Allisons and their maid Alice Cleaver, a murderer of her own child. The Allisons spend the whole sinking searching for their son Trevor when Alice runs off with him. The main characters though are played by Peter Gallagher and Catherine Zeta Jones, a fictional couple. Knowing that the story is mostly fictional can put you off most Titanic movies. This is no exception. Even true stories like the Allisons have been changed. Mr Andrews is missing all together and Captain Smith is left to explain that the ship will sink. His explanation is too good. The special effects are among the worst I've seen. It looks like a computer game. The ending is cleverly edited but it misses some amazing parts of the Titanic's last moments. The splitting in two is short (you see the breaking up of the deck and that's it - you see a boy crying and then the sinking of the vertical stern). The sets are lousy reconstructions and the film is badly staged (the masses of Third Class below decks reduced to an embarrasing twelve or so). The music and acting is great, though parts of the film are patchy:(the sinking of the boiler rooms are pathetic - just sprinkles of water), the band don't look like they're actually playing the pieces at all, and the Third Class locked behind gates only think about breaking the door down after all the lifeboats have gone. It may not be the best but its a good watch. Its unbelievable though that this came out just a year before James Cameron's masterpiece.
