[quote="sepiatone"]Chloris Leachman played Molly Brown twice in two separate Titanic incarnations, a 1957 television presentation and 1979's S.O.S. Titanic.

E. J. Ratcliffe had three goes as Teddy Roosevelt, two in the silent era and a third in the talkies.[/quote

The Titanic episode was called 'The Unsinkable Molly Brown' and there is a segment of it on YT. Is the rest out there?

I could only imagine, it's early television so maybe in kinescope, maybe.

I've never heard of anyone who's seen them, either. Does anyone know if they survive?

Neither film is listed in the FIAF Treasures database, but I don't think that database is very complete regarding sound-era titles.
