** Averted with the ship's baker, who gives up his place in the lifeboats so a woman could have her husband with her. Against all the odds, he survives thanks to the alcohol he consumed during the sinking.

** Also a steward who heroically comes to the aid of a young woman too scared to try to leave the ship...only for both of them to be crushed by the collapsing funnel moments later.

* ShownTheirWork: It's universally acclaimed at being not only a completely realistic portrayal of the disaster itself but also of the social/class structure of the time.

* ShownTheirWork: It's universally acclaimed at being not only a completely realistic portrayal of the disaster itself but also of the social/class structure of the time. The only major inaccuracy is that of the ship sinking whole -- entirely forgivable given the lack of information to the contrary available at the time.

Before Creator/JamesCameron's ''[[Film/{{Titanic 1997}} Titanic]]'', there was '''A Night to Remember'', a 1958 black-and-white British movie about the 1912 sinking of UsefulNotes/RMSTitanic, based on Walter Lord's nonfiction book of the same title chronicling the maritime disaster that claimed the lives of 1,517 of the 2,223 people on board.

* HistoricalHeroUpgrade: While there's no fair way to deny most of the crew and officers acted heroically (no matter what [[Film/{{Titanic}} The Other Movie]] depicted) and while if even half Lightoller's autobiography is true the man was a certifiable hero, the movie takes it just a bit too far, showing him launching lifeboats he had nothing to do with and in places he couldn't have been.
* {{Homage}}: Several scenes from this film were remade/reworked in ''Film/{{Titanic}}''; most notably, just after the ship goes down we see a brief shot of a young man and a young woman struggling to both climb on top of a floating box.
