Thread Name: BS: Titanic- sunk by mistake!
Subject: RE: BS: Titanic- sunk by mistake!
My next-door neighbour is related to the actor who played the slimy bodyguard who tries to shoot Jack in the film. For those of you who saw the film,and wondered if you'd seen that particular actor before; well, he played the lead in "Morgan; A suitable case for treatment", and he was the nasty "Mr Bliffil" in "Tom Jones" .
    As for the Titanic ; well, according to at least one book,there is compelling evidence to suggest that it wasn't Titanic at all, but a sister-ship of similar appearance,deliberately put in harms way in the hope of being involved in some mishap (which indeed it was !!) as an insurance fraud perpetrated by the financially embarrassed shipping company.Apparently, Titanic herself soldiered on for many more years,under a different name !!
