The RMS (Royal Mail Ship) Titanic, an Olympic class passenger liner, was a British luxury passenger liner that sank on April 15, 1912, en route to New York from Southampton, England, on its maiden voyage. The largest and most luxurious ship afloat, it had a double-bottomed hull divided into 16 watertight compartments. The Titanic struck an iceberg on the night of April 14, at 11:40 PM. Titanic sank, with great loss of life, at 2:20 AM, on April 15, 1912. The United States Senate investigation reported that 1,517 people perished in the accident, while the British investigation has the number at 1,490. Regardless, the disaster ranks as one of the worst peacetime maritime disasters in history, and is by far the best known. It carried some of the richest, most powerful industrialists, multi-millionaire entrepreneurs of her day.
The sinking of Titanic has been the basis for many novels describing fictionalized events on board the ship, such as Titanic: The Long Night written by Diane Hoh. Many reference books about the disaster have also been written since Titanic sank, the first of these appearing within months of the sinking. The book ‘A Night to Remember’ was made into a movie in 1958 and was also transformed into ‘Titanic: The Musical’, with a book by Peter Stone and music and lyrics by Maury Yeston.
Several films and TV movies were produced the first being In Nacht und Eis as early as 1912. The 1997 film 'Titanic', starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet was a critical and commercial hit, winning eleven Academy Awards and holding the record for the highest box office returns of all time.
