  1. Lori, if you like disaster films based on real events, what do you think of A Night to Remember? James Cameron’s Titanic is basically a scene by scene remake of this film minus the romance between Jack and Rose. It was made in the mid 50s so not quite a Golden Age film, but a great one nonetheless. ☺️
