The Last Sight of the <i>Titanic</i> as Portrayed on Film

The sinking of the Titanic was such a momentous disaster that movies are made about it over and over. CaptainJZH collected a dozen of those movies or TV shows and put together clips of the final plunge of the ship as it slipped underwater, out of sight. Theses movies span a hundred years, and you can watch the special effects get better over time. I had to laugh at the first one, but the rest are pretty moving.

You might notice that all the cinematic sinkings before 1985 showed the ship in one piece, and all those afterward show a ship broken in two. The Titanic was gone before any other ships arrived, but most of the 705 survivors said that the ship broke in two pieces before sinking. But those hundreds of eyewitness accounts were not believed! That fact was only confirmed after the wreckage on the sea floor was discovered in 1985. -via Kottke
