When the “unsinkable” Titanic struck an iceberg, it sank in less than three hours.  By the early morning of April 15, 1912, it 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, the acclaimed British director 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 twentieth-century catastrophe. Like many British produced historic dramas of the 1950's, this powerful drama sports a fast pace and incredible amount of detail (Some Titanic survivors were on-set advisors).  The cast is filled with British cinema legends Kenneth More, Honor Blackman and David McCallumJoin film historian and Titanic expert Glenn Andreiev (who has a personal link to the sinking) as he introduces a rare big screen showing of this film masterwork. (UK, 1958, 123 min., b/w, DCP)
