Storyline

The plot focuses on the romances of two couples upon the doomed ship's maiden voyage. Isabella Paradine (Catherine Zeta-Jones) is a wealthy woman mourning the loss of her aunt, who reignites a romance with former flame Wynn Park (Peter Gallagher). Meanwhile, a charming ne'er-do-well named Jamie Perse (Mike Doyle) steals a ticket for the ship, and falls for a sweet innocent Irish girl on board. But their romance is threatened by the villainous Simon Doonan (Tim Curry), who has discovered about the ticket and makes Jamie his unwilling accomplice, as well as having sinister plans for the girl.

Did You Know?

Trivia

Produced in advance of the imminent James Cameron movie on the same topic, this mini-series was rushed into production and very hastily completed in order to cash in on the latter's before-release hype. This mini-series aired over two nights on CBS in late-November 1996. The first part received high Nielsen ratings, but experienced a huge drop during the second part, because most viewers got thrown off by the lackluster production. Since this mini-series was so rushed, it included mistakes and historical inaccuracies which Titanic enthusiasts found inexcusable given the wealth of knowledge about the liner and its occupants available by the mid 1990s.

Goofs

Although it was already pointed out that the dining room was located on A deck, instead of D DECK, it is later shown that Jimmy Perse and Simon Doonan are looking at the dining room through the boat deck windows. See more »

Quotes

Captain Smith: Not only did you stop your engines, you reversed them! She would have turned much more quickly the greater the forward motion!

Crazy Credits

The opening credits of Part 1 and 2 are set against a background of photos of the Titanic's construction. See more »

Alternate Versions

The Croatian video release is heavily cut, trimming many scenes with Alice Cleaver and her employers, the romantic subplot between Isabella Paradine and Wynn Park and Osa's scenes with her roommates, etc. Many subplots and sinking scenes get removed entirely. This version runs approximately 132 minutes. See more »

A good mini-series
5 August 1998 | by mermattSee all my reviews

Though Titanic purists and some critics did not particularly care for this mini-series, it is rather good.

The cast is strong, including George C. Scott as the captain. The computer FX are well done. The only disappointment for me was the hodge podge way the final sinking was represented -- it was just a confusing series of cross fades that really showed nothing. Nevertheless, the film is worth seeing.
