Rediscovered film of Titanic interest

Postby Robert Dewar on Tue May 21, 2013 4:46 am

Our archive has a newsreel released shortly after the sinking of the Titanic. The film is listed as a 'lost film' and is titled 'The Greatest Ocean Liner, The Titanic at Southampton prior to her ill-fated maiden voyage'. Before people get too excited, the ship in the film is the Olympic. Subsequent scenes show the White Star offices, newspaper sellers, streets, and a memorial service ? in London.

If sufficient interest is expressed, timecoded screeners of the film may be provided for a fee via the archive
