RMS Titanic is one of the most famous historical ships. The Titanic was the biggest moving object ever built. She was not only biggest, but she was also backed with superior quality and performance. The Titanic was the property of White Star Corporation, based in Britain.
An Olympic-class passenger liner, the RMS (Royal Mail Ship) Titanic was a British luxury liner that sank on April 15, 1912 on her maiden voyage from Southampton, England to New York. The largest and most luxurious ship afloat, it had a double-bottomed hull, divided into 16 watertight compartments. The Titanic struck an iceberg at 11:40 PM on the night of April 14. She sank, with great loss of life, at 2:20 AM on April 15. The United States Senate investigation reported that 1,517 people perished in the accident, while the British investigation has the number at 1,490. Regardless, the disaster ranks as one of the worst peacetime maritime disasters in history, and is by far the most widely known. She carried some of the richest, most powerful industrialists and multi-millionaire entrepreneurs of her day.
The sinking of the Titanic has been the basis for many novels describing fictionalized events on board the ship, such as "Titanic: The Long Night," written by Diane Hoh. Many reference books about the disaster have also been written since the Titanic sank, the first appearing within months of the sinking. The book "A Night to Remember" was made into a movie in 1958 and was also transformed into "Titanic: The Musical," with a book by Peter Stone and music and lyrics by Maury Yeston.
Several films and TV movies were produced, the first being "In Nacht und Eis" as early as 1912. The 1997 film "Titanic," starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet, was a critical and commercial hit, winning 11 Academy Awards and holding the record for the highest box office returns of all time.
