The Making of “A Night to Remember”
by William MacQuitty.
Before James Cameron’s remarkable production “TITANIC” of 1997, there was a film that set a standard in 1958. “Titanic Memories” tells the story of this film classic — the role some seventy Titanic survivors who advised on many aspects of the making of the film from costumes to technical detail.
Shot on location and at Pinewood Studios, this was the most expensive production released from the Rank Organization in the 1950s, filmed in reportage-style black and white. Illustrated with a wealth of archival material, including the previously unpublished original film programme, this is a unique personal account of the skills and talent of the producer and author of this book.
