    The funny thing about that is that if the Titanic had hit that iceberg head on, there's a fair chance it would have survived. It was the glancing blow to the side that ripped huge holes in the iron hull.

    Anyway, those of us who have seen the film "Raise The Titanic" know the truth. It sank in one piece, & when it was raised to the surface with various large balloons, there didn't even seem to be any serious holes in it. So it's kinda strange that it sank in the first place. o_O

    ---and the funnels that fell over when it sank miraculously re-attached themselves on the sea bed. :rolleyes:

    Was this, perhaps, the worst film of all time?

    Titanic hidden? Didn't they find the Titanic wreckage?

    Its other faults aside, it was certainly rendered inaccurate by the actual discovery of the Titanic wreck. Though, to be fair in that regard, there were eyewitness accounts both ways. And, as far as I know, the original Board of Trade inquiries in 1912 went with the testimony that it didn't split as their official ruling. So, for many years, plenty of people did expect it would be found in(more or less) one piece.

    Not according to the fairly well debunked,but still promoted, Titanic switch theory.It was Titanic's original sister ship, the Olympic, in disguise that sank.:D

    Now, if you want to go down THAT rabbit hole briefly, this site debunks the whole switch idea.

    Just read the book that proposes the theory. It's done so unconvincingly, I don't think that even the authors believe it!

    Robin Gardiner has written three more books that I know of. However, it is telling that even his original co-author on the first one, Dan Van Der Vat, has said the theory didn't hold up and has had no further involvement with Gardiner's "work".

    Not by a long shot (esp. considering "The Blue Lagoon" came out in '80. Or "Xanadu", which was released in the same week). :eek:

    That said, it isn't a very good movie. Not even one of Cussler's best books (by another long shot). His other book-made-into-film, "Sahara" is a little more up-to-date and even fun in parts (if you can stand Matthew McConaughey). The book is one of Cussler's best (IMNSHO).
