Raise the Titanic

HERE is a clip from the movie, Raise the Titanic". It was made before the ship was found on the ocean floor. It was once thought to be believed that the Titanic, sank to the bottom of the ocean in one piece and that since it was so deep and cold and that no marine life could live that far deep, so that it would not be rotted. Many thought that if it was ever found, that it would be like a sunken mansion. Some even thought that if ever found, the gash that sank it could be even closed up and the ship could be re-floated. One theory was that you could fill it up with ping pong balls! For those who are knowledgeable about the ship, the interiors of the ship used in the movie are not like those on the Titanic, but I do love the scene where they walk into the ballroom, with all the furniture just wet and soggy and in disarray. It seems like a silly movie now, but worth watching. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uQkY-RVg4eM&list=FLLRaafZ3tixJSm48C61L0WQ&index=1&feature=plpp_video
