Titanic

Continuity mistake: When Jack is howling at the front of the ship, he puts his arms up. His left arm is behind the rope, but in the next shot of him, his arm is in front of it. In the next shot, it is behind again.

Titanic mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Rose enters the cabin where Jack is handcuffed, the pillow on the berth behind appears/disappears between shots.

Revealing mistake: As the Titanic is leaving you can see the news guy holding a hand cranked camera. He's cranking it left-handed, but all hand-cranked cameras are right handed. Either a construction mistake or revealing that the shot was flipped - a mistake either way.

Revealing mistake: When Rose and Jack first enter the boiler room, they run towards the right. If you look closely you can see the reflection of the worker in the back to the left in the mirror they use to make the bolier room look longer. In the next scene they are running in the opposite direction, because the set is so small due to the mirror, and once again you can see the same reflections caused by the mirror.

Audio problem: When Rose is talking to Thomas Andrews, telling him to tell her the truth about what has happened, listen to the voices in the background. At one point in the scene you can hear someone saying "Yes madam, please put it on immediately", then someone laughs. Right at the end of the scene, the same line can be heard in exactly the same tone of voice, followed by the laugh – it's obviously a loop. Although some tracks in the mix of the soundtrack do not loop at that moment, the track with the mentioned sentence does.

Continuity mistake: When Rose is running to get to the stern to throw herself off she starts by running on the first class A-Deck promenade. Then when the whole stern of the Titanic is shown sailing, Rose runs out from the 2nd class B-Deck promenade, a deck down. The only way that these two promenades were connected was by two ladders, which Rose passes when she keeps running. It makes no sense to go down the ladders, go forward, turn around and head back to the aft part of the ship.

Continuity mistake: Before winning the poker game, right when we meet Jack, his cigarette swaps from worn out and dirty to perfect and spotless.

Visible crew/equipment: When the captain goes to the wheelhouse, which is flooding, you can see the shadow of a camera at the bottom left corner.

Factual error: The car which brings Rose and Cal to the docks at Southampton has an RB registration plate. But RB wasn't introduced as a car registration index mark until 1929.

Audio problem: When the Captain is watching the overturned boat trying to be launched, there is a crew member working on the davit, causing it to make a rapid clicking noise. But soon after the noise stops, the crewmember is still turning.

Continuity mistake: After Rose has been persuaded to step into the lifeboat the camera is on Cal and Jack for quite some time when Cal reveals to Jack that there is no arrangement in his benefit. During all this time the lifeboat is being lowered, but when the camera cuts back to Rose she can still make eye contact with Jack almost at level.

Continuity mistake: When the funnel tips over it breaks at the bottom. The camera cuts to Cal, then back to the funnel, and it breaks again.

Continuity mistake: When Brock Lovett opens the safe someone is taking a video. There are differences between what we see in the video camera monitor and what is actually happening, like the way Brock's hair falls over his forehead.

Factual error: In the shots taken in the grand staircase, the lights on the ceiling are flush with the ceiling itself. The lights in the actual Titanic's grand staircase were mounted via a small pedestal. Earlier in the film when the submarine is exploring the grand staircase, there is a shot of one of these same lights except this light actually has the original pedestal.

Continuity mistake: When Rose, Cal and the others sit around a table talking and drinking, and Mr Ismay says something. His hands are locked together by his fingers, but in the following wide shot his left hand is down by his knee and his right is holding a fork with food on it. Also, Rose puts the cigarette holder to her mouth and takes her left hand away from it but in the following shot her left hand is still on it.

Continuity mistake: Right after the 1st smokestack has fallen and crushed Fabrizio, it is seen from above creating huge sprays of water. The problem is that the smokestack looks nothing like the Titanic's. You can see the top and there is no black whatsoever. And to make it stranger, there is a cable attached to it and then one below it, both on the peach/orange color, and not the black.

Audio problem: After Jack asks Rose "do you love the guy or not?" the camera shows him from behind, and he is moving his jaw as if he is asking the question again.

Continuity mistake: When Jack cries he's king of the world he raises his arms pointing in an 11-12 o'clock direction. A frame later, from a different angle, they're in a 9-10 o'clock direction.

Continuity mistake: When Cal is trying to kill Rose and Jack, then suddenly realises his diamond is in the coat, his fringe swaps from messy to perfect from frame to frame.

Factual error: Those USA $20 bills that Caledon Hockley stuffs into the pocket of First Officer Murdoch are Federal Reserve Notes, which were first issued in 1914.

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.
