Product Description

Academy Award-winner Rex Harrison narrates this delightful film about a time when the world was fascinated with the great oceanliners and naval vessels of the 19th and 20th centuries. TITANIC IN A TUB uses the famous Forbes Magazine collection of over 300 rare toy boats to explore the history of both full-size sailing vessels and their miniature counterparts. The film juxtaposes recreated scenes of boys and their toy boats with an extensive compilation of archival film and vintage photographs of famous ocean liners, naval vessels and great maritime battles. This creative combination gives the viewer the sense of genuine sea adventure on board the ships as well as the child-like excitement elicited by the fantasy of toy boats. A charming chronological account of the rapid development of maritime technology from the 1890's to the 1930's make TITANIC IN A TUB a fascinating history lesson.

Review

I have been fascinated by ocean liners since I was a little kid, and this video had a great deal to do with that! I used to watch Titanic In A Tub when I was home sick from school (probably as early as Kindergarten) and stole the tape from my folks when I moved away from home years ago. I just ordered the DVD and can't wait to see it in a high resolution format. The shots of all the toy boats and the wonderful sweeping nostalgic shots of the real ships that inspired their design makes this a video I highly recommend.

This is a pretty good book on the subject. I gave it a four because I believe this is a worthy subject and needs more attention to details. In other words, the book, as good as it is, needs many more and detailed photos. Otherwise, perhaps, it could have added more info on the manufacturers and any history/interesting background on each model. The photos, as they were in number, are quite good in quality. I do recommend this book for anyone wanting a brief look at these samples of the toy boat.
