** 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.
