An Apparent Tour of the Titanic (1912)

A short film which appears to show the interior and deck of the Titanic only minutes prior to its ill-fated voyage in April 1912. Included in the footage is Captain E.J. Smith apparently inspecting the ship just 10 minutes prior to departure, various deck promenades, and the actual leaving of the ship. We are reliably informed however that it is a sneaky bit of sleight of hand by the newsreel company, splicing together footage from other ships (mostly the Titanic's 'sister' ship The Olympic). Notice the scratched out name plates on the frames which appear as floating white marks in the film.
