Titanic Survivor Molly Brown
Titanic survivor Molly Brown - the "unsinkable Molly Brown".
Margaret Tobin Brown was on the Titanic on its maiden voyage when it hit an iceberg. She made the crew of lifeboat 6 return to try to find other survivors, giving rise to the legend of a spunky, vocal woman. But then, she was all of that. Though both her husband and she were born of Irish immigrants, they rose to wealth but never forgot their roots.
Debbie Reynolds played Molly Brown in the movie musical "The Unsinkable Molly Brown".
