A pair of Titanic model ship plans
20th Century Fox, 1953. Mimeographed plans for the construction of a miniature ship model. Sheet 1 of 2 is an elevation of the whole ship, with a large note reading, "See Ray Kellog for wild sections, operation of sinking--, wrecking on iceberg, etc." Sheet 2 provides plans for decks A and B, including rooms labelled "Verandah & Palm Court," "1st Class Smoke Room," "Forecastle Deck" and "Reading and Writing Room." Both sheets are dated 8/20/52. Directed by Jean Negulesco, Titanic starred Clifton Webb, Barbara Stanwyck, and Robert Wagner and was noted for its high drama, if not its realistic depiction of the sinking. Maurice Ransford (whose name is noted on these plans), Lyle Wheeler, and Stuart Reiss shared an Academy Award® nomination for Best Production Design for this film.
