L. C. ANDERSON HIGH SCHOOL TRIBUTE 3: 1956 YELLOWJACKETS YEARBOOK: FACULTY & "A NIGHT TO REMEMBER"

MY SELECTION NO 3 FOR "BEST MOVIES OF THE FIFTIES AND SIXTIES" IS
"A NIGHT TO REMEMBER"
STARRING "KENNETH MORE" AND "RONALD ALLEN"




A Night to Remember is a 1958 British drama film adaptation of Walter Lord's eponymous 1955 book, which recounts the final night of the RMS Titanic. Adapted by Eric Ambler and directed by Roy Ward Baker, the film stars Kenneth More and features Ronald Allen, Robert Ayres, Honor Blackman, Michael Goodliffe, and Laurence Naismith. It was 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's World Premiere was on Thursday, 3 July 1958 at the Odeon Leicester Square. Titanic survivor Elizabeth Dowdell attended the American premiere in New York on Tuesday 16 December 1958.[2] The film received critical acclaim upon release. Among the many films about the Titanic, A Night to Remember has long been regarded as the high point by Titanic historians and survivors alike for its accuracy,[3] despite its modest production values[4] when compared with the Oscar-winning film Titanic (1997).[3][5]   THANKS WIKIPEDIA
