By Byron Kolln HALL OF FAME on February 10, 2008
Format: DVD
The 1996 Hallmark miniseries of TITANIC was unfortunate in that it ended up being largely overshadowed by James Cameron's 1997 big-screen blockbuster (by the time the miniseries was aired in the UK and Australia, James Cameron's version had well and truly exploded onto the scene). This was a pity, as the Hallmark version has many things in it's favour.

Catherine Zeta-Jones and Peter Gallagher head a star-studded international cast, and the adaptation succeeds in blending five different stories into the narrative. Perhaps most importantly this version depicts a real-life passenger called Alice Cleaver (played by Felicity Waterman) who attempted to kidnap the baby of her employers when the boat began to sink (leaving the family to search for the child until all the lifeboats had departed, thus sealing their fate).

At the time of this miniseries, Catherine Zeta-Jones was at the cusp of Hollywood superstardom. She looks ravishing as Isabella Paradine, who rekindles an affair with her first beau Wynn Park (Peter Gallagher). Also in this miniseries, we meet in greater detail John Jacob Astor (Scott Hylands) and his pregnant young second wife Madeline (Janne Mortil). The affair of Astor and Madeline was one of the biggest scandals of the period and it's great to have them as prominent characters in this version. The younger romance is provided by thief Jamie (Mike Doyle) and Danish convert Aase (Sonsee Neu-Ahray).

No version of TITANIC would be complete without the ebullient and "unsinkable" Molly Brown (Marilu Henner plays her with enough spirit and spunk to make Debbie Reynolds proud and Kathy Bates pale). And the villain of the piece is thieving steward Simon Doonan (performed with oily relish by Tim Curry). A flavour of classic Hollywood is provided by George C.

It seems that not much attention has been paid to this film, perhaps because of its made-for-TV status. It is accurate and follows what is known about the tragedy. Unlike James Cameron's Titanic, for example, where the Californian is not mentioned and minimal reference is made to the rescue effort of the Carpathia, those aspects of the story are played-out here. This movie tells the story as it is historically known with regard to the non-response of the Californian's Captain, Stanley Lord. Also well told is the superb response of the Carpathia's Captain, Arthur Rostron, in making every effort to reach the stricken Titanic before she sank.( An effort which won the real-life Captain Rostron a Congressional Medal of Honor.) The subplots are good, though many are of course fictitious and some a bit melodramatic, with a focus on many people on board, not just two. Acting is first rate. George C. Scott is excellent as Captain Smith. This is not a high-budget special effects feast, but there is plenty to see. If you would like a modernized "A Night to Remember" this movie will suit. Highly watchable and recommended.

If you have even heard of this film, you already know it was hopelessly overshadowed by the Kate / Leonardo film.

This film doesn't really have the artistic beauty of the Kate/Leonardo film. And generally speaking the characters are not as memorable, or even likable.

Anyone who knows anything about this subject knows that a so called unsinkable ship is loaded with famous people as well as some lower class people. There are some interesting interactions. Then the ship hits an ice berg, and then there aren't enough life boats. Who will live, and who will die?

But I will say this for it. If you're after a movie that is a bit more historical than the Kate/Leonardo version, then you may appreciate this. There very well may have been a woman on board who murdered her own child and kidnapped the child of the family she was working for. (Her actions also seal the fate of her employers and their daughter. The one 1st class child who did NOT survive.)

John Aster's request to go with his wife and the refusal is there.

A small part of survivor R. Norris Williams is there.

All in all, it depends whether you are after a love story or history. This one does not have the lush or artistic beauty the Kate/Leonardo version has. But I don't get the impression this movie was trying for that. It was after nailing down more history.

I will say George C. Scott was a good captain who explains that the Titanic foreshadowed its fate even with its name. (Beings who challenged the rule of Zeus and were defeated and punished.)

I will also grant this version makes Bruce Ismay far more redeemable. He helps many people into life boats before his escape. And his sorrow is evident.

The less I say about Mari Lu Henner, the better.
