At 11:40PM on April 14th, Titanic met her match, in the shape of an iceberg.
At 2:20 AM April 15th, after only 5 days on the sea, she slipped beneath never to see the light of day again.
Living forever in a perpetual world of darkness…..
In memory of the 1,496 who didn't make it...
In a special memorial episode of The Movie Commentary Podcast, I bring you the episode that I have been waiting to do ever since I saw this podcast.
James Cameron’s film Titanic became a landmark point in film history when it was released in 1997. It became the first film to gross over $1 billion at the box office. It held the record for highest grossing film of all time for over 10 years. It tied the record for most Oscars won for a film (11). It is also seen by many as one of film’s last great epics. Movies that are made on a big scale, with giant set pieces and thousands of extras.
For fans of the actual ship itself, it brought the ship back to life. Never before had people seen the RMS Titanic sail in beautiful sunlight in living moving color. It brought us the joys of sailing to a new world for hundreds of immigrants. It brought us the elegance of the first class. It brought us the suspense of hoping, pleading that she would somehow miss the iceberg. It brought us the crushing realization that this beautiful ship, thought to be unsinkable by some, is going to sink. It brought us the horror of how terrible that night must have been for those who couldn’t get a lifeboat. And finally, it brought us the grief and sadness that the real passengers felt when they realized the people they grew to love didn’t make it.
Simply put, no movie, no experience puts you on Titanic like this movie does.
Listen along as we dive into several key components of this great film. From several key historical events to fictional components to interesting behind the scenes stories, this is an episode you won’t want to miss.
