He urges Captain Smith to make the fastest possible crossing to New York. When iceberg warnings come in, the captain must ask himself if he is willing to risk the safety of his ship just to please Ismay.
Plot: This little-known German film retells the true story of the British ocean liner that met a tragic fate. Ernst Fritz Fürbringer plays the president of the White Star Line, who unwisely pressed the Titanic’s captain (Otto Wernicke) to make the swiftest possible crossing to New York.

Not as bad as expected
Look out for the scene when Petersen forces his Ex to enter the lifeboat and then guess who watched this movie quite carefully…James Cameron maybe? To put it short, if you are able to substract the propaganda and the resulting errors, it is better than the 1953-US version, especially regarding the special effects. Could anyone check out which ship “doubled” the Titanic? If it really is the “Gustloff” then we have a case of very bitter irony here…
A Heavy Amount of Propaganda
Although there have been several movies produced depicting the fate of the RMS Titanic this particular picture is unique because it was made in Nazi Germany during World War II. This fact cannot be overlooked because the film itself suffers from a heavy amount of propaganda which permeates just about every scene. Most noticeable is the effort to falsely attribute the sinking of this great ship to the unmitigated greed and avarice of the owner of the White Star Line, “Bruce Ismay” (played by Ernst Fritz Furbringer). While it is possible that he pressured “Captain Edward J. Smith” (Otto Wernicke) to steam ahead at full speed in spite of iceberg warnings, the actual truth concerning the degree of coercion will probably never be known. Unfortunately, the plot not only suggests that greed on his part was a factor but also accuses the British Empire of the same dastardly complicity. And the manner in which this was done struck me as being somewhat dark and sinister. But then the fact that Joseph Goebbels had a personal role in the movie’s production might have something to do with that. In any case, apart from the propaganda angle this movie actually wasn’t too bad and I recommend it for those who enjoy films from this time or pertaining to this particular incident. Slightly above average.
