Titanic-I have been intrigued by the Titanic story since late 70's and have read a lot of material on her and was excited about this movie. I thought it was a good telling about the fateful voyage while interjecting a ficticious love story into it.
Reminds me of Hemingway's quote: “If a writer knows enough about what he is writing about, he may omit things that he knows. The dignity of movement of an iceberg is due to only one ninth of it being above water.” Ernest Hemingway
Titanic - 1997 "Smith: Clear. Second Officer Charles Herbert Lightoller: Yes. I don't think I've ever seen such a flat calm. Smith: Like a mill pond, not a breath of wind. Second Officer Charles Herbert Lightoller: It will make the bergs harder to see... with no breaking water at the base. Smith: Hmm. Well, I'm off. Mantain speed and heading, Mr. Lightoller. Second Officer Charles Herbert Lightoller: Yes, sir."
