The movie "Titanic" was based on a real cruise ship that went by the same name, but you probably already knew that. However, we bet there is plenty you don't know about the famous ship.
The RMS Titanic, which took more than two years to build at a cost of $7.5 million (or more than $194 million in today's dollars), was launched from Southampton in England on April 10, 1912. It sank just days later, during the early morning hours of April 15.
The ship was billed as unsinkable, having been constructed to withstand a breach of four of the ship's 16 watertight compartments. Unfortunately, for the builders of the Titanic and the passengers she carried, the iceberg the ship struck the evening of April 14, 1912, breached five of those compartments, flooding the ship and ultimately sinking it. Because the ship was thought to be unsinkable, not much thought was put into lifeboats and survival drills. There weren't enough lifeboats for all the passengers and crew members, and the ship's captain did not conduct survival drills with those on board.
The movie "Titanic" was based on this real-life tragedy. Think you can ace this quiz about the movie -- or will you sink along with the ship? Answer these questions to find out!
