Overview
On April 14, 1912, just before midnight, the unsinkable Titanic struck an iceberg. In less than three hours, it had plunged to the bottom of the sea, taking with it 1,500 of its 2,200 passengers. A Night to Remember depicts the ship's final hours in an unforgettable rendering of Walter Lord's book of the same name. Now, aficionados of this terrific film can compare it to the facts with Criterion's special edition, which features screen-specific commentary by Titanic experts Don Lynch and Ken Marschall.
