1958 ***** 123 mins.
From the very first time I saw this film, I declared it the best film ever made about the Titanic. Based on a book, which was based strictly on documented evidence and sworn testimony from actual survivors, A Night to Remember feels more like a documentary rather than a film. Watching the film again recently, I realized how much James Cameron's Titanic tries to emulate this film. This is, truly, a remarkable film. It greatly benefits from the fact that there are no cheesy subplots; it's just a straightforward presentation of the Titanic disaster.
