Jean Negulesco United States, 1953

Matthew_Lucas's rating of the film Titanic

This 1953 Hollywood melodrama recounts the sinking of the Titanic, but while it claims to be historically accurate it really doesn't have a grasp of Edwardian society or the finer details of the event. The plot is pure soap opera fodder, but Barbra Stanwyck and Clifton Webb are both in fine form, providing a few moments of emotional truth amidst the otherwise stilted surroundings.
