Looking at this film now.
In many ways, this film about the Great Unsinkable Ship is a lot more honest than the 1997 Celine Dion monstrosity blockbuster, the theme of which was being hummed by a few of those poor 300 South Korean kids (R.I.P.) who just went down on the doomed over-loaded Japanese-built ferry Sewol. Those S. Korean high school students, btw, died for reasons that the vermin at the NYT actively deny, but that readers of this and other alt-rightosphere blogs would readily understand: namely : a generations-old biologically-encoded propensity for conformity over individualism.
Thus the obedience to intercom orders to stay put even as their ship was at a 45 degree list, and the teenagers were able to walk on walls.
How many New England prep school kids would stay put on a half-capsized sinking ship only because ordered to do so by the higher authority of an intercom?
Answer: none I know, nor I.
Footnote: Before the ship (Sewol) flipped and those poor slanty-eyed black-hair kids all drowned, one of them told his cellphone: "I don't want to die. I have too many anime films I still need to watch."
Here's the article if you don't believe me: "'Mom, This Looks Like The End of Me,' Doomed Vessel's Last Minutes", by NYT communistChoe Sang Hun.
From the article :
But we digree a hair.
No Koreans in this 1943 Nazi Germany version of "Titanic," though. (Though there is a suspiciously alien-looking fellow in steerage, at around the hour point five mark. He's seen in the scene where the steerage passengers are enjoying a clearly Gypsy woman dancing for the 3rd class crowd. It is also worth noting that Goebell's 1943 "Titanic" makes the steerage passengers the clear heros of the film, after of course the German first-mate Petersen, who replies to Bruce Ismay's "I order you to reserve me a lifeboat!" (@circa 59 minutes) :
- As First Officer of this ship, I take orders from no one, not even you ;
- Second: It's women and children first ;
- Third : I advice you to go to your cabin and get your life jacket.
