Synopsis: On April 14, 1912, just before midnight, the unsinkable Titanic struck an iceberg. In less than three hours, 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, A NIGHT TO REMEMBER, the acclaimed British director Roy Ward Baker (Don't Bother to Knock) depicts with sensitivity, awe, and a fine sense of tragedy the ship's final hours. Featuring remarkably restrained performances, A NIGHT TO REMEMBER is cinema's subtlest, finest dramatization of this monumental twentieth-century catastrophe.
