A Night to Remember (1958)
A Night to Remember is a 1958 British drama film adaptation of Walter Lord's book A Night to Remember, recounting the final night of the RMS Titanic. It was adapted by Eric Ambler, directed by Roy Ward Baker, and filmed in the United Kingdom. The production team, supervised by producer William MacQuitty, used blueprints of the ship to create the sets accurately, while Fourth Officer Joseph Boxhall and ex-Cunard Commodore Harry Grattidge both worked as technical advisors on the film. The film premiered in the United Kingdom on Tuesday 1 July 1958. Titanic survivor Elizabeth Dowdell attended the American premiere in New York on Tuesday 16 December 1958. Among the many films about the Titanic, it has long been regarded as the high point by Titanic historians and survivors alike for its accuracy, despite its modest production values when compared with the 1997 Oscar-winning film Titanic.
