Summary 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 Titanic's final hours. Featuring remarkably restrained performances, A Night To Remember is cinema's subtlest, finest dramatization of this monumental twentieth-century catastrophe.
