The saga of the Titanic has captured the world's imagination for almost a century. Its story of greed, loss and survival remains as fascinating today as it did on that fateful, moonless night in April, 1912. Long before James Cameron's blockbuster "Titanic," "S.O.S. Titanic" meticulously recreated the world's most lavish luxury liner and its sumptuous, gala atmosphere during the four-day journey leading to the disaster. The all-star cast includes Harry Andrews as Captain Smith, Cloris Leachman as the unsinkable Molly Brown, Susan Saint James, Ian Holm, Helen Mirren and David Warner.

The casting is terrible, and the acting even worse. David Janssen as J.J. Astor comes across as a leacherous old man and Madeleine (Susan St.James) is his golddigging bride. Her childish hairstyles and behavior make their relationship resemble kiddie porn. Capt. E.J. Smith is an egocentric NASCAR-driver wannabe, and J. Bruce Ismay is loud, obnoxious, and willing to kill anyone who comes between him and the lifeboats. Thomas Andrews is portrayed as whining through his tears - and that is before the iceberg! After the collision, we never see him; Capt. Smith is shown as inspecting the ship and pronouncing her to be doomed. Apparently Andrews is in his cabin still crying instead of doing anything to help anyone. Even the very talented Cloris Leachman as Margaret "Molly" Brown can't save this movie from sinking as surely as the great ship herself (which is shown sinking in one piece).
"SOS Titanic" is one of the most poorly crafted and historically innacurate films I've ever forced myself to sit through. After I finished watching this movie (an ordeal indeed!), I gave the videocassette to my kids so that they could tape their favorite episodes of "Sponge Bob Squarepants" over the original contents.
