A Night to Remember is a 1955 non-fiction book by Walter Lord that depicts the sinking of the RMS Titanic on 15 April 1912. The book was hugely successful, and is still considered a definitive resource about the Titanic. Lord interviewed 63 survivors of the disaster as well as drawing on books, memoirs, and articles that they had written. In 1986, Lord authored his follow-up book, The Night Lives On, following renewed interest in the story after the wreck of the Titanic was discovered by Robert Ballard.

Action, drama, history. Director: Roy Ward Baker. A Night to Remember depicts the final hours of the Titanic in an unforgettable rendering of Walter Lord’s book of the same name. Running time: 2:03:00.

The book is based on newspaper articles written prior to and after the tragedy.

The book boasts many perfect movie moments not found in Cameron's film. When the ship hits the berg, passengers see "tiny splinters of ice in the air, fine as dust, that give off myriads of bright colors whenever caught in the glow of the deck lights. The book is based on newspaper articles written prior to and after the tragedy. Also, the author interviewed the survivors still living in the early 1950's, prior to publishing this book.

The sinking of the Titanic is an event which moves me very deeply, possibly the most out of all historical events. It is an exquisite tragedy of both beauty and horror. I watched the 1958 film over the summer and was inspired thereafter to read the book of the same name, by Walter Lord. I hope I've done it a bit of justice in this audiobook. The music in this chapter is by Maurice Ravel (Pavane pour une infante défunte), Grieg Peer Gynt (Solveig's Song and The Death of Åse), and Gustav Mahler (Symphony No. 5 in C Sharp Minor).

El 14 de abril de 1912 el Titanic surcaba las frías aguas del Atlántico rumbo a Nueva York. Era una noche deslumbrante. Fuera del barco reinaba una calma glacial y el mar se mostraba liso como cristal bruñido, dentro, las luces y la música revelaban el ambiente de fiesta, alegría y despreocupación que habían disfrutado los

La ultima noche del Titanic / A Night to Remember

Walter Lord wrote this 1955 book about the sinking of the `Titanic', the world's biggest-ever ship. She was 882.5 feet long, 92.5 feet wide, and 60.5 feet from waterline to Boar Deck. It had a double bottom and 16 watertight compartments (which didn't extend very far up). On its first trip to New York it grazed an iceberg and sank on April 15, 1912. Over 1,500 souls were lost. The lifeboats could have carried 200 more. Lord located 63 survivors and talked to most (`Acknowledgments'). Lord relied on documents from the official investigations and the early books and magazine articles. There is a list of passengers divided into First Class, Second Class, and Third Class. There are ten chapters for its 209 pages. In 1898 a novel told of a fabulous liner that was wrecked when it hit an iceberg on an April night (`Foreword').

The lookouts saw an iceberg and phoned the bridge. It was a close miss, a slight shudder told of the hit (Chapter 1). Sea water spouted into the lower decks. The ship stopped (Chapter 2). The remarks of the surviving passengers are quoted. The ship was seriously damaged and would soon sink! The Captain ordered the lifeboats uncovered and the passengers mustered. The stewards told the ladies to get to the top deck (Chapter 3). There were more people (2207) than lifeboat capacity (1178). Women and children first. The band played ragtime. Other ships were contacted by wireless. They sent the first SOS call. Rockets were fired as a distress call. Couples were separated; women and children first into the lifeboats (Chapter 4). Lifeboat #1 only had 12 people instead of forty. The men in the engine room remained at work until rising waters forced them out. President Bruce Ismay ordered the speed without consulting Captain Smith (Chapter 5). Two men jumped off the railing to get into Boat D.

At 2:05AM Captain Smith said "every man for himself" (Chapter 6).Some jumped overboard into the freezing water but survived. [Wool keeps you warm even when wet.] As the bow sank below the sea everything movable broke loose with a roar before the ship disappeared. Chapter 7 discusses the resultant changes. There would be lifeboats for everyone. The International Ice Patrol would track icebergs. Did this end the "general feeling of confidence"? [Maybe it was the Great War?] Fifth Officer Lowe tried to rescue others in the water (Chapter 8). Other boats with unfilled capacity did not. After the `Carpathia' received the distress signal they steered towards the ship (Chapter 9). They dodged icebergs then rescued people from the lifeboats (Chapter 10). The dead were left in the lifeboats. The survivors were silent, as if stunned by the event. Was the news of the sinking delayed for commercial advantages? Newspapers reported sensations and misinformation. [Is it any different today?]

`Fact About the Titanic' has information about this huge passenger liner. She had a double bottom and watertight construction but the bulkheads didn't extend very far up. [Reducing costs.] The phrase "unsinkable" sounds like advertising. Note the percentage of passengers saved decreases as you go from First Class to Third Class. Was this due to order of notification? New laws required ships to have enough lifeboats for all their passengers. [Would they have the time to lower them all?] The book would be better if it had something on modern ship design. The collision and sinking of the `Andrea Doria' in 1957 led to the end of ocean liners for transporting people. The ship that hit it was designed for northern seas and had a reinforced bow.
