A NIGHT TO REMEMBER
1958, MGM/Park Circus, 123 min, UK, Dir: Roy Ward Baker

Just before midnight on April 14, 1912, the “unsinkable” Titanic struck an iceberg, and in less than three hours, had plunged to the bottom of the sea, taking with it more than 1,500 of its 2,200 passengers. In his unforgettable rendering of Walter Lord’s book of the same name, Roy Ward Baker depicts with sensitivity, awe and a fine sense of tragedy the ship’s last hours. Featuring remarkably restrained performances, A NIGHT TO REMEMBER is cinema’s subtlest and best dramatization of this monumental 20th-century catastrophe. (Program notes by the Criterion Collection.)
