It's a little early to give a heads-up, but I don't want to forget about this.  It's been a waaay long time since this excellent movie has been aired.  Although it perpetuates the Titanic myth, which is a false construct, it's about the best example of British moviemaking at its, um, best.  A total class act.  It has a top-notch cast, including Kenneth Moore (his best role), Honor Blackman, and Davis McCallum.  The movie takes an ensemble approach, not focusing on any one story line too much, which from some perspectives dilutes the dramatic effect.  The best thing about the movie is the restraint with which it is made, in the acting, the pace, the recounting of the events.  Nothing is hyped, and allows the true power of the story to come through.  Even though it perpetuates the myth, as I said, the White Star line does come in for a back hand slap for having its managing director cravenly take a lifeboat seat ahead of other passengers, including women and children.

A Night to Remember (1958), 4:45 a. m., so it's DVR time.
