Coming up on Saturday at the Described Movies: A Night to Remember.

Only on Mushroom escape:
From this Saturday at 2am Eastern, that’s 6pm Saturday in NZ, or 4pm in Sydney, and repeated every four hours throughout the day , it’s the described movie A Night to Remember from 1958.
A Night to Remember is a 1958 British drama film adaptation of Walter Lord's 1955 book, which recounts the final night of RMS Titanic.
Adapted by Eric Ambler and directed by Roy Ward Baker, the film stars Kenneth More
and features Michael Goodliffe, Laurence Naismith, Kenneth Griffith, David McCallum and Tucker McGuire.
It was filmed in the United Kingdom and tells the story of the sinking, portraying the main incidents and players in a documentary-style fashion with considerable attention to detail.
The production team, supervised by producer William MacQuitty (who saw the original ship launched) used blueprints of the ship to create authentic sets, while Fourth Officer Joseph Boxhall and ex-Cunard Commodore Harry Grattidge worked as technical advisors on the film. Its budget of £600,000 (£11,868,805 adjusted for inflation [2012]) was exceptional and made it the most expensive film ever made in Britain up to that time.
The World Premiere was on Thursday, 3 July 1958 at the Odeon Leicester Square.
Titanic survivor Elizabeth Dowdell attended the American premiere in New York on Tuesday 16 December 1958.
The film received critical acclaim upon release and is still widely regarded as "the definitive cinematic telling of the story."
Among the many films about the Titanic, A Night to Remember has long been regarded as the high point by Titanic historians and survivors alike for its accuracy, despite its modest production values, compared with the Oscar-winning version of Titanic.
