  • Short Summary

    RMS Olympic setting sail. Shots of relatives and survivors after Titanic sinking.

  • Description

    NB: there has been much confusion over this film which has been used many times in reference to the Titanic. The ship featured in these shots is NOT the Titanic. The only genuine Titanic footage held by Pathe is to be found on tape PM3468 at following timecodes: 01:40:20 to 01:47:06.

    MS Captain Smith on bridge of Olympic.

    VS Liner leaving docks with crowds waving from decks to those on quayside.

    VS Relatives crowding around the Cunard offices waiting for news. Survivors of the disaster are seen.

    There then follows a repeat of the above footage with some extra shots of people on the deck of a liner and two tugboats. There are extra liner shots in this version, shots of seagulls and an iceberg. This is a duplicate of the section used in "Time To Remember - Time of the Suffragettes."

    Note: Although Pathe records claim these shots to be of the Titanic it has come to light that these shots are definitely not the Titanic - probably the Olympic - sister ship of the Titanic.
