As one of the most famous ship disasters of all time, the tragedy of the Titanic has been made into many exciting films that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Three of the popular movies movies that have been made. Titanic, A Night To Remember, and Titanic. All three movies capture different scenes from this horrific event. "It would be told in many more films, including American, British and German productions, and in many different styles, ranging from lavish melodramas to restrained docudramas." As can clearly be seen, even though it was a horrible disaster, the Titanic will always be remembered and loved.
The survivors of the sunken Titanic were in lifeboats, drifting aimlessly across the Atlantic. Soon enough, a sister ship of Titanic came to their rescue. After hearing the Titanic's SOS signals, it had left its course to help, but they were too late. However, Carpathia managed to save the 705 survivors and take them to safety. " After this initial sighting, more of the lifeboats were spotted, and eventually 705 individuals were saved from the icy waters; the rescue efforts were completed by 8:30 am." As you can see, the Carpathia was a great hero in the saving of the survivors.
There weren't as many survivors as there could have been because there wasn't enough lifeboats for everyone on the ship and also all the seats in the lifeboats weren't filled. The passengers were told that women and children would be the first in the lifeboats, and there were still many men, women, and children that died with the ship. The number of the people who lived was less than the number of crew members! "885 crew members....only 705 Titanic passengers survived." (Passengers on The Titanic). Since at first people weren't worried about the ship actually sinking, they didn't fill the life boats up all the way, but if they had, then more people would have survived.
After three hard-working years of building the Titanic, the grand and unsinkable ship was finished. It had taken a lot of man-power and designing as well as much trial and error to build it. On May 31, 1911, the greatest ship of the time was finished. This ship wasn't actually called unsinkable by the designers of the ship. "'While Harland & Wolff claimed that it never advertised the Titanic as unsinkable, a White Star Line brochure indeed said that the Titanic was designed not to sink. The media of the day, of course, seized on this idea of an unsinkable ship.'" (The Build of the Titanic). To this day, some pieces of the ship are on a display in a museum.
