In the early hours of April 15th, 1912, after colliding with an iceberg in the North Atlantic, the famous British passenger liner RMS Titanic sank to the ocean depths, leaving just 706 survivors. What ever became of them after this tragedy? Well, some of them went on to live long and incredible lives!
For example, have you ever heard about “The Unsinkable Molly Brown?” She’s one of the most popular and liked characters in the 1964 movie, and earlier Broadway musical, based on the great ship’s unlucky maiden voyage. But this woman wasn’t just thought up by some Hollywood screenwriter, she was a real passenger!

– “The Unsinkable Molly Brown” is one of the most popular and liked characters in the 1964 movie, and earlier Broadway musical, based on the great ship’s unlucky maiden voyage.
– But this woman wasn’t just thought up by some Hollywood screenwriter, she was a real passenger!
– Speaking of incredible women, throughout her career working at sea, Miss Violet Constance Jessop survived not one but three shipwrecks, the Titanic included.
– The actress Dorothy Gibson, most famous for her role in the 1912 movie “Saved from the Titanic,” was actually one of the survivors of the catastrophe.
– Not long after Gibson arrived in New York aboard the Carpathia, her agent convinced her to star in a movie about the Titanic’s sinking. She wrote the script herself and wore the same clothes in the movie that she did on the night of the disaster!
– One of the most heartbreaking outcomes of the Titanic’s sinking was that it tore families apart. The Navratil brothers, Master Michel Marcel and Master Edmond Roger were just toddlers when they boarded the Titanic with their father.
– Their mother eventually saw them in the newspaper, and the family reunited a month after the sinking.
– Eva Miriam Hart was only 7 years old when she boarded the Titanic with her parents. According to Eva, her mother couldn’t sleep at all the whole time she was on board because she’d had a really bad premonition about the trip.
– Joseph Bruce Ismay was Chairman of White Star Line, the company that operated the Titanic. He was on the ship that night, survived the sinking, and was rescued in Collapsible Lifeboat C.
– Professional tennis player Richard Norris Williams was on board the Titanic with his father. Given that the lifeboats, as many know, were reserved for women and children, these two guys were left to fend for themselves on a sinking ship.
– Perhaps it was purely coincidental or maybe something more, but the resulting wave washed Richard towards Collapsible Lifeboat A, so he climbed in.
