Movie Spotlight: Titanic [1943 Version]
I had no idea there was a 1943 version of Titanic. I came across it when I was researching about the 1997 film being done in 3-D (due out in 2012).
There’s a reason why it’s not well-known, it’s a German film that was banned, apparently propoganda, though you would not notice it because it’s quite subtle. The movie is not so bad, but it has a dark tone, much more so than the 1997 version. None of the characters in the film you really care for, and the music soundtrack is pretty painful. It makes for an interesting watch for historic purposes but not quite enjoyable for modern times.
