Raise the Titanic (1980)

I've seen this before. Supposedly, a mineral needed for nuclear warfare was sunk onboard the Titanic. They make a big scheme to re-float the ship and look for the mineral onboard.

There is one big flaw, however: The film was made in 1980, 5 years before the real wreck was discovered. Because of this, the Titanic still appears in one piece, only showing the second funnel cracked off.

When the wreck was discovered the news channels still believed the Titanic was in one piece and plans to raise the Titanic were already underway. The first pictures taken of the wreck did not show proof the Titanic was in two pieces, so the speculation continued for some time.

Here is TV news footage from 1985.

They were so banking on that Titanic sank gracefully under the sea and became a sea princess, that they ignored eyewitness accounts and film evidence that told them otherwise.
