    Comments about this product:

    This is a 1953 B&W drama, first class. Starring Clifton Webb and Barbara Stanwyck. This is the ultimate movie depicting the different classes on 1912 English ship. It is very correct to British society, aristocrats (1st wealthy), middle (2nd class), and steerage (3rd poor).

    I wish log a complaint against the 2007 remake starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet. If you ever sailed aboard an European old motorized ship, you would found it impossible to defy doors, walls, and locks [not silly gates] to travel between classes! This version is totally unreal in behind reality story!

    This movie shows Clifton Webb escaping just a moment before all the contraptions are closed upon loading. He knows when, he has sailed before.

    I will share my DVD description, I think it has more clarification below.

    Winner of the Academy Award for best writing, story, and screenplay, this heart-wrenching drama won a praise from critics and audiences alike, including The New York Times statement that "it overflows with gripping emotion"

    Determined to remove her family from the superficial, high society world in which her husband Richard (Clifton Webb) is engrossed, Julia Sturges (Barbara Stanwyck) boards R.M.S. Titanic in England on its maiden voyage to America, along with her two children. Learning of her plans, however, Richard purchases a steerage ticket aboard the ship in hopes of reconciling [bossing] with his family.

    But when fate, ice and an overzealous ship captain step in, the Sturges family faces an unimaginable challenge - the possibility of separation from one another forever. This classic, based on true-life history of the famed ocean liner, remains one of the most poignant, well-crafted films of all time.

    My reviews are below.

    This was a tragedy on epic scale in history. Watch "A Night to Remember" a historical 1958 film starring Kenneth More. Or watch the musical "The Unsinkable Molly Brown" 1964 starring Debbie Reynolds. She actually survived the Titanic was given an award; I visited her home in Denver, CO.

    Let me remind you of the numbers that died. The Titanic carried about 2200 people, 1500 died. Do arithmetic, it was a horrible tragedy, they did not load lifeboats to full capacity. This occurred on April 14, 1912.

    Now, nations collaborated about ocean regulations, enough lifeboats for everyone! A captain should die with his ship, unless he is Italian [coward].

    This is a good movie between Webb and Stanwyck, their story is very good about marrieds splitting, plus how Webb rejects his son and adores his daughter. Ugly.

    This is the ultimate in Titanic stories. There is enough fact in this movie to make a Hollywood story.
    You have to choose a (1) a plausible behind story, (2) correct factual story, (3) crass nudity sexual story.

    What is your conscience choice? I picked number one for my first choice (I have), I pick number two for a future purchase, (3) forget it was ever made because it it forgets current society and customs.

    Unlike how Hollywood presents ship staterooms, they are very small and very compact, the only difference between one category to another is a foot of walking space. Do you really want to spend $3000 more for walking a few square feet?

    I wrote a very long review because I believe in this movie. I guess it is loyalty.

        this movie holds a more true life story , not a tragedy made to be a love story. Lets all remember the over 1200 people that perished , not who gets the girl .
