Kathy Bates as Molly Brown

Kathy Bates plays a wife of a Colorado mining millionaire, intelligent and self-taught--She spoke several languages--Molly Brown was a plain-spoken woman without background in high society, who was generally shunned by the socialties of Denver. When the Titanic was sinking, she was evacuated in lifeboat # 6, under the command of Quartermaster Hichens. Having been at the wheel of Titanic when she struck the iceburg, Hichens was completely unnerved and directed the boat away from the sinking ship as fast as possible. He was terrified that they would be swamped by the suction as the ship went down, or overwhelmed by swimmers desperate to be saved. Mrs. Brown and several more women wanted to return to help save others, but they were overruled by Hichens' fears, which became less and less rational. Mrs. Brown effectively took over comand of the boat and persuaded the women to help with the rowing-her heroism and selflessness during the disaster was much talked about afterwards and earned her the moniker "The Unsinkable Molly Brown."
