Saved from the Titanic, a short film about the sinking of the RMS Titanic, was released on the 14th of May, 1912.
Created immediately after the ship sank a month earlier, the film is notable for starring silent film actress Dorothy Gibson, who had actually been on the Titanic when the disaster occurred.
In the film, Gibson wore the same clothes she’d been wearing when she’d been rescued from the ship. She was twenty-two at the time (she would have a birthday three days after the movie’s release), and suffered a breakdown afterwards. She never acted on the screen again.
Saved from the Titanic is considered a lost film, as no copies are known to have survived.
