The Titanic Turns 100 This Year – Ever Heard Of The Blues Song About The Ship? [VIDEO]

When it comes to the most memorable maritime disaster, one has to look no further than the R.M.S. (Royal Mail Steamship) Titanic.  And, while the Academy Award winning movie, starring Leonardo DiCaprio & Kate Winslet, may also be the most memorable, there have been some 20 other films, features, and documentaries about the famous ship vs. iceberg battle.

The most notable of these being the 1953 marvel featuring Clifton Webb, Barbara Stanwyck and Robert Wagner, where the romance, back story, plot, and disaster all plays out in about 98 minutes.  You may need to hook up with Netflix, or hit the entertainment department at your favorite “big box” store to find this classic. 

But, for the 100th anniversary of Titanic, you can climb aboard the White Star Line’s ‘unsinkable’ vessel right here in East Texas (Cinemark Stadium 12 in Lufkin, or Carmike 6 in Nacogdoches) to watch this re-released, 3D version of the original 1997 blockbuster hit.  Bring your own life vest! (Apparently, this new 3D version is way more intense than the previous one…)

In the 1970s, an underground FM favorite in its time, is Jaime Brockett’s 13-minute “Legend of the U.S.S. Titanic.” It follows a talking folk-blues format, and also throws in knowing countercultural references, albeit with a mania that seemed like Brockett was going to jump right off the grooves and into a straitjacket.
