Speaking of survivors and movies, another survivor named Lawrence Beesley (December 31, 1877 – February 14, 1967) was on the set of the movie, A Night to Remember.  It was said that he tried to jump into the scene of the sinking ship as a way to go down with it in a symbolic way. The director, Roy Ward Baker, would not let him go through with it because it was against union policy and could halt production. Beesley would later go on to write a memoir titled, The Loss of SS Titanic.
