The ill-fated Titanic is part of cinema history because, since it sank in 1912, the British liner that starred in one of the most catastrophic maritime disasters in history has appeared in at least 14 films, as well as television series and dozens of documentaries. Without a doubt, the most famous is the one released in the US on December 14, 1997.
Under the direction of James Cameron, the tragedy became the beautiful love story between two young people of different classes and conditions. Its effective script, more or less faithful to reality, its iconic images and its evocative soundtrack propelled it: it was the highest grossing film in history in its day, grossing 2.2 billion dollars. Cameron led his Titanic to a good port also at the Oscars, in which he fished eleven statuettes.
