Titanic (1997 film)

The Titanic was a British ocean liner, the largest liner built in her day. She took her place in history when she struck an iceberg and sank on her maiden voyage in 1912. Estimates vary, but around 1,520 people perished in the accident and the disaster ranks as one of the worst peacetime maritime disasters in history. The resulting media frenzy, the discovery of the wreck in 1985, and the box office successes of three major films have perpetuated the fame. The great loss of life resulted in improved safety standards at sea, and affected many aspects of maritime law.
