    Great show today JD. I could not listen live but herd the archive.
    Titanic was an interesting story. Something else interesting is the novella Futility, written in 1898 by U.S. writer Morgan Robertson, shows some eerie similarities to the famed story of the sinking of the Titanic.
    In Futility, the boat is described as the largest ship of its day and was called the Titan. Both ships, described as “unsinkable,” hit an iceberg and went under in mid-April. Both were capable of speeds over 20 knots. Despite having thousands of passengers on board, both ships carried the bare legal minimum number of lifeboats. Just something else to make the Titanic story so fascinating.

    The Titanic has been featured in numerous films, TV movies and episodes. The 1997 film Titanic was one of highest grossing films. The first film made of Titanic was “Saved From The Titanic”, made in 1912, just 29 days after the sinking. This old silent was co-written by and stared Titanic survivor Dorothy Gibson. Now a lost film following a studio fire in which the last known prints were destroyed.
    “Titanic” a 1943 German Nazi propaganda film (personally overseen by Joseph Goebbels) cast a fictitious German First Officer on the Titanic as the hero and the British as villains. The first modern film to use singularly the name Titanic and intermix fictional subplots and characters with historical persons on board the ship. This was filmed on board the German liner SS Cap Arcona which was later mistakenly sunk by the RAF with civilian loss of life greatly exceeding that of the Titanic.
    My personal favorite Titanic film was “A Night To Remember” 1958. This was a British docudrama based on the book by Walter Lord starring Kenneth More as the ship’s Second Officer Charles Lightoller. Regarded as one of the most historically accurate Titanic disaster films, with the exception of not featuring the ship breaking in half. (There was still doubt about the fact she split in two when the book and film were produced.) Some effects scenes were ‘borrowed’ from the 1943 German film.
    I became interested in Titanic several years ago when a friend of mine obtained an art print of the ship which was dated 1912. A beautiful print which I thought might be worth a few bucks. Anyway enjoyed your show JD.
