Richard Norris Williams III (Tennis Star) also gained fame as being a survivor of the RMS Titanic disaster in April 1912. He and his father, Charles (who he saw crushed by a falling funnel), were traveling first class on the liner. Shortly after the collision, Williams freed a trapped passenger from a cabin by breaking down a door. He was reprimanded by a steward, who threatened to fine him for destroying White Star Line property, an event that inspired a scene in Cameron's 1997 film Titanic.
