PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Two Titanic survivors who later became tennis pros are being honored at Rhode Island's International Tennis Hall of Fame and Museum. Nearby on Cape Cod, a wreath will be laid for a radio operator who relayed Morse code messages as the ill-fated ship went down. In Denver, a musical piece composed for famed passenger Molly Brown is getting its premiere.
WASHINGTON — After an entire century that included two high-profile government investigations and countless books and movies, we're still debating what really caused the Titanic to hit an iceberg and sink on that crystal-clear chilly night.
FARGO - Even as her husband, H.F. Chaffee, helped her slip between the ship railings into a lifeboat below, Titanic passenger Carrie Chaffee believed everything would be fine.
It’s going to be all right, her husband assured her. You’ll be rowed back to the ship in just a few minutes.
‘You can be blasé about some things, Rose,” Cal Hockley (Billy Zane) pretentiously sniffs about the big, doomed ship, “but not about Titanic!”
And so it is with the movie about that famous ship. Love it or hate it, there’s little to be blasé about regarding the biggest screen hit of all time.
ORLANDO, Fla. - Bill Paxton is 56 now, awaiting the late spring History Channel premiere of “Hatfields & McCoys,” which he co-stars in with Kevin Costner. And he's still basking in the glow of his last series, “Big Love,” a show that had critics swooning over “his manly authority” and “boyish good looks” (Dorothy Rabinowitz, Wall Street Journal).

NEW YORK — Eleven-year-old John Payne has been a student of the Titanic since kindergarten. He has scrupulously re-searched the ship, built a model out of Lego freehand and successfully lobbied his fifth-grade teacher in suburban Chicago to let him mark the disaster's centennial with a multi-media presentation for his class.
DENVER — Thousands of miles from the ocean, a museum tells the story of a woman made famous by the Titanic. No, her name was not Rose, and a movie about her life, “The Unsinkable Molly Brown,” starring Debbie Reynolds as a plucky lifeboat survivor, was a hit decades before Kate Winslet's doomed romance in “Titanic.”
