PROP TITANIC HULL FROM "TITANIC"
20th Century Fox, 1953
A scaled-down model (though still huge) of the Titanic's hull used in many scenes to show the oceanliner falling apart in the Academy Award-winning film that starred Barbara Stanwyck, Clifton Webb and Robert Wagner. Made in two separate sections and painted a teal blue, this piece is constructed out of metal and wood and still displays interior gear mechanisms which worked at one time. Stencilled on the stern in white paint is Titanic/Liverpool and on one side is a large gash indicating where the iceberg hit. This film was considered to be a masterpiece of special effects in 1953, and was the inspiration for the 1997 version starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet.
