THE UNSINKABLE MOLLY BROWN is a 1964 American musical starring DEBBIE REYNOLDS. The song score was composed by Meredith Willson. The plot is a fictionalized account of the life of Margaret Brown, who survived the 1912 sinking of the RMS Titanic. Debbie Reynolds was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actress for her portrayal of Brown.
This film was Debbie Reynolds’s personal favourite of all her films.
During production, M-G-M was putting all its resources into its forthcoming Doctor Zhivago and at least $1 million was cut from the budget of Molly Brown. Running out of money to complete the film, director Charles Walters proposed cutting the rousing dance number “He’s My Friend”. To save the number, cast and crew ultimately decided to film it in one rigorous day using multiple cameras to reduce shooting time!
