Titanic movie costumes on display at Biltmore

The connection between the Vanderbilts and the Titanic may not be immediately apparent, but the Vanderbilts were originally booked to sail on the disasterous maiden voyage of this "unsinkable" ship. At the last moment, they decided to sail on the Olympic, her sister ship. A servant of the Biltmores stayed with the Titanic to take care of their belongings; he was among the 1500 souls lost when the ill-fated ship sank.
