Before James Cameron gave us Titanic, A Night to Remember was the definitive cinematic version of the famous ship disaster. While this version takes a more historical approach, it is easy to see where Cameron got many of his ideas - and it features many well-known actors in smaller roles - a veritable "whose who" in British cinema at the time. A bit stoic in its depiction, but it holds up well even by today's standards.

A british dramatization of the actual recorded events leading up to and during the sinking of the Titanic performed without the melodramatic histrionics of Cameron's bloated monstrosity. The crew are played with a reserved, pragmatic dignity, counterpointing the aloof complacency and later panic of the passengers. It's meticulous in it's detail, solidly acted and features model effects that have stood the test of time rather impressively. It's a little overlong (even though it's an hour shorter than 1997's debacle) but the writer's choice to let the drama of the actual events unfold without embellishment and sentiment was the right one. If only James Cameron had taken a page from his book...
