J. Bruce Ismay:
Her name, like everything about her, gave promise of something mighty and splendid. They called her Titanic. She was the longest, the tallest, the most luxurious ship in all creation.
When passengers are shown fighting for their lives in the water, there is a wide-shot of the ship which shows the first funnel completely under water. About ten seconds later, a shot from behind the stern shows the first funnel still above water.
