    It's a clip from Atlantic that they used to (unfairly) show as an example of totally stilted performances in early sound films. The White Star Line forbade the use of the name "Titanic" in this film.

    I've just received 'A Night To Remember' on DVD for my birthday. It's the ITV Home Entertainment version, with restored main feature and over 1 hour of extras. Some excellent viewing coming up!

    Hi,
    This is my first post here, please be kind

    I'm writing about the mention that Sean Connery had a part as an extra in the film. Has anyone managed to determine if this is indeed true or not? I and others have spent hours watching "A Night To Remember" and have not seen him. The screen grab that purportedly shows a bearded Connery as a seaman is actually another actor - Larry Taylor (I informed the BFI of this and they were very appreciative). A friend writes, "I have now heard from Rocky Taylor, who is Larry Taylor's son and, by a remarkable coincidence, another Connery lookalike - he was Sean's stunt double in all his Bond films. He has confirmed that his father was indeed the bearded seaman on the boat deck, but regarding Connery he can say only that "he wasn't in it as far as I know."

    I think the reason why even Connery's website lists him in it is because this urban myth was touted as fact and was eventually picked up by Connery and his team after it had appeared on IMDB etc and they believed it. Can he be sure of every film he appeared in as an extra? Besides, at the time, he had started to acquire speaking roles and to appear as an extra would have been a step downwards in his career. There's also the issue of timing as he may have been involved in other films at the time (The scenes is "A Night To Remember" were shot in late 1957).

    If anyone has seen Connery, please let me know. But as far as I can see, its just an urban myth. And once implanted in the human mind, they're very difficult to erase

    With best wishes

    Simon

    Welcome to the site Ronco.

    The question about Sean Connery appearing in A Night To Remember has been asked here before. I think the consensus was that he did not actually appear in this film or he has not been found yet. The mistaken identity of the bearded sailor was from IMDb who still claim he was in the film. I recognised the face but could not recall the name so I asked about it here and a member said it was Larry Taylor.

    If you would like to see some of the extras involved you could try my website.

    I have more than 250 extras from this film. Maybe you could ID some of them but sadly you will not find Mr Connery in there.

    Thanks MovieDudeToo. Its frustrating when you hear an urban legend and you are in a position to verify it (by virtue of the fact that you own the film) and can't find the man anywhere! If he was an extra, he must have been shunted into the background sufficiently to prevent anyone seeing him, but this doesn't jibe with his rising presence in the film industry.
    Your website sounds great, I'll have a look. One person I'd like to identify is the very young Jeremy Bulloch.

    Is No.181 on your list the man who was pulled from the lifeboat? If so, a friend thinks he may be Jonathan Hanson.

    I'ts a long time since I looked at this film but I think your right. He looks like the hysterical man evicted from the lifeboat. Well Spotted.

    Also, I think the Jeremy Bulloch sighting may also be in error. Many of us have searched for him in vain. He may be in the film but too far in the background to ID properly or more likely, he is not actually in the film.

    To be fair, it was a friend of mine who recognised him. I'm still amazed that I missed Stratford Johns. I used to love Z Cars.
    My friend has also pointed this out, which I assume you've seen: http://www.aveleyman.com/FilmCredit.aspx?FilmID=13724
    - I note they couldn't find Bulloch either

    You assume correctly. We know each other well. Aveleyman.com is a much bigger site than mine. My site has only been up and running for about 6 weeks. Where we differ is, I try to put as many extra's in as possible. Apart from that we are both really in the same business.

    Thats good to hear. I thought there might be some competition between you.
    I've asked a friend who knows much than me more about the cast of "A Night To Remember" to get in touch with you. I think he may be able to help with some identifications.

    It might take a while for him to go through yours and the aveleyman list to see if there are any names he's got that you don't. He has come up with an interesting possibility for Jeremy Bulloch.

    My friend Bob has identified No.58 on your list but I think it would be best if he told you it himself. He has your email, and he's comparing his notes with your listing and your friend's.

    The film is set in 1912, yet a passenger on deck in a life jacket clearly has a 1950s (Tommy Steele) style haircut.
    During the final moments, a bunch of people are falling in the water, one of shots was repeated which shows the same person falling twice in the water.
