Titanic (movie, 1943)

Titanic is a German film by Herbert Selpin and Werner Klingler, released in 1943 .

This propaganda film , commissioned by Joseph Goebbels , depicts the sinking of the Titanic , a British transatlantic liner that struck an iceberg in April 1912. Behind the tragedy, the film aims to condemn the greed of the British owners of the ship through the character of Joseph Bruce Ismay who does not hesitate to launch his ship at full speed in the Atlantic Ocean in defiance of security. Conversely, Lieutenant Petersen, a German officer , opposes these methods and saves the owner of the ship in order to make him pay for his crimes in court.
