Titanic

Deliberate mistake: When Jack and Rose are adrift in the ocean, the stars behind them are not the right ones for that time and date. In fact, it's not any sky ever seen on Earth. The right half of the sky is a mirror image of the left half. The fimmakers deliberately positioned the stars to form the shape of the pendant 'Heart of the Ocean.'

Continuity mistake: When Cal gives Rose the diamond her front hair changes from shot to shot, most drastically when she says "good gracious."

Continuity mistake: When Jack is sneaking over the rail to the first class deck, a boy is preparing to spin his toy top. As Jack leaps the rail and begins walking, the boy throws the top and you see it start to spin. The camera angle then changes to show Jack walking, toward the coat he is about to 'borrow', and in the background you can see the boy again drawing back to toss his toy top. Since you have to meticulously wind the string around the top of the toy, it would be impossible for him to be making a separate toss. It's obviously the same toss filmed from two separate angles.

Continuity mistake: In the scene close to the end, we see crewmen of the ship pulling down a lifeboat, if you watch closely the plank that passengers sit on breaks off when falling onto the deck, but in the following scene it has repaired itself and is back on the lifeboat.

Continuity mistake: When Jack is playing poker in the beginning of the movie with the Swedish guys and Fabrizio we can see a short shot of his cards. He then takes another card and wins by having a full house. However, there was no way to get a full house with the cards he had by just drawing one more card.

Factual error: Professional Radio Operators hold the key used for Morse code between their thumb and two fingers - they don't tap it, as was shown. Tapping would produce a harsh voice in Morse code.

Continuity mistake: When the Captain tells the morse operator to make an emergency call, the position of the papers and pencils in front of him move around between shots.

Continuity mistake: After making love, Jack says to Rose "Don't worry, I'll be all right" and kisses her, sucking the upper part of her lip. When the angle changes, he is sucking the lower part.

Continuity mistake: While with Fabrizio on the front of the boat, Jack's hair moves wildly, yet a frame later, from a different angle it's still.

Continuity mistake: When Tommy begs the steward to open the gate he is reaching with his right arm through the gate, holding on to a bar. When the camera angle changes the arm is hanging down.

Continuity mistake: When Tommy Ryan, one of Jack's ship friends, is trying to get to the top deck, but is stopped by metal guard rails, at the beginning of the scene he has his right hand on the rail, then in the next shot he has his left hand on the rail.

Factual error: In the famous "I'm flying" Scene, the sunset is to the couple's left. But at that time (April 14) the ship was definitely steaming due West, and the sunset should therefore have been directly in front (or even a bit front-right).

Continuity mistake: After handcuffing Jack, Lovejoy says the initials on his coat and Jack turns to Rose. A frame later, from a different angle, he is looking away.

Sacha

Continuity mistake: After Cal throws Rose's cigarette away, she lowers her hand and cigarette holder twice.

Sacha

Continuity mistake: When Rose finds Jack handcuffed, the papers by the corner of the table next to him swap from being white coloured to yellow, plus being on the very edge or not, depending on which angle is shown.

Visible crew/equipment: When Jack and Rose enter the car to make love, cameras, shades, boom mike and studio structure are reflected on the brass parts of the car.

Sacha

Continuity mistake: About to jump off the boat, Rose says "You're crazy" and looks at the sea. A frame later, her head is turned towards Jack.

Sacha

Continuity mistake: Rose is attempting to commit suicide and tells Jack to leave. When he says "No", his hair swaps from being all over his face to neatly combed, between shots.

Sacha

Continuity mistake: When Rose runs to commit suicide, the people she bumps into disappear in the immediate aerial angle.

Sacha

Factual error: Regarding the church service on the Titanic, it was non-sectarian, however it was based on the Anglican Church in England (or Episcopal in America). The fact is that Captains did conduct the service, were open to anyone, thus Jack could not have been kept out.

Trivia

When Jack Dawson says, "Sit on the bed....I mean the couch," it says in the script "Sit on the couch." Leonardo DiCaprio (who played Jack) really made that mistake.
