Titanic Blu Ray
The story of the Titanic has been visited, to differing degrees, on the small and big screen many times. But there's a strong and compelling argument that 1958's A Night To Remember, based on Walter Lord's novel, is the best of the lot. For several reasons. What most sets A Night To Remember apart is the sheer humanity of it. Approached in a documentary style, and with the story told mainly from the perspective of Kenneth More's Charles Lightoller, it's less epic in physical scale than, for instance, 1997's Oscar-magnet Titanic.
With eleven Oscars on its mantelpiece, star-making turns from Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio, and a soundtrack that continues to sell, Titanic's place in movie history has long since been assured. The film itself needs little introduction. Epic in ambition and scale, Titanic tells the story of the sole voyage of the infamous ship, focusing its story on a young couple from different walks of life.

Jean Negulesco’s 1953 telling of the Titanic story may sometimes get lost behind A Night To Remember and James Cameron’s Oscar-winning epic, but it’s got a human core to it that makes it still worth seeking out. The film is headed up by Clifton Webb, Robert Wagner and Barbara Stanwyck, and the story is, as you might expect, quite familiar. Titanic recounts the demise of the luxury ship as it hit an iceberg on its maiden voyage.
Comfortably one of ITV’s most ambitious drama productions of all time, Titanic is a four part miniseries, from the pen of Downton Abbey scribe Julian Fellowes. Its scope is certainly dramatic, too. As well as focusing on the well-known disaster of the sinking of the famous liner itself, Titanic boasts a massive cast, who tell a series of interweaving stories.
