Man: Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death...
Jack: You wanna walk a little faster to get over that valley, pal?
In one scene you can see Colonel Archibald Grace escorting two ladies to a lifeboat. Rose then asks if there are any lifeboats left and he replies, "This way, I'll show you." He did actually survive, a lot of people presumed he died. He wrote an autobiography stating that he climbed aboard the turned over lifeboat. You can actually see him in the film hanging onto the lifeboat wearing the top hat trying to cut the ropes. See more...

Other: Several actors/props/areas etc. are well known in this area to be flipped. For example, Billy Zane, who plays "Cal" in this film is right-handed, yet in some areas he uses his left-hand when it's not dominating and natural. (Noticeably, when he is chasing Jack Dawson down the grand stairs, he is holding his gun in his left hand, when it would make more sense to hold his gun in his right hand.)
Continuity: Close to the end of the film when lots of people are trying to free the lifeboats from the ropes, you can see Cal, climb up a black wire and stand on the side of a half turned lifeboat, but if you watch closely in the following shot, you can see that Cal is still climbing up the black wire.
Revealing: (DVD timings) The band decide to go their separate ways, just before the ship sinks. As they are seen departing, the lead violinist strikes up a solo - I think it'd be 'Nearer My God to Thee' or so the legend goes. A fraction of a second before he does, watch the second violinist - he disappears off to the right of the shot at first, then reappears near the side of the ship - he is obviously awaiting his cue as he turns round too early, i.e. before the lead strikes the first note, then turns away again.
Factual error: The both times the fireplace in the first class lounge is seen there is nothing on the mantle piece. But in photos of the actual lounge there is a statue on the mantle called "Artemis of Versailles" which was a small copy of the original in the Louvre, Paris. The statue was even photographed on the ocean floor when the Titanic was found, but there is no statue in James Cameron's movie.
Factual error: When Jack goes up to first class on a Sunday morning, the group is singing the Navy Hymn "Eternal Father". What is impossible is that they are singing the last two lines of the verse written for Naval Aviators. The verse starts "Lord guard and guide the men who fly". They are singing the last two lines, "Oh, hear us when we lift our prayer, For those in peril in the air." The Wright Brothers flew about 8 years before, and I don't believe that this verse was even added until the 1930's.
Plot hole: Rose is finally rescued from the water by fifth officer Lowe in boat number 14. The night of the sinking, this same boat also rescued the people of another boat half full of water, boat A. And who is in this boat? The infamous Hockley! So in broad daylight, Rose and Cal arrived at the Carpathia, in the same lifeboat, without seeing each other.
Continuity: When Jack and Rose are on the way to the end of the ship to try and stay on as long as possible, you can see them jump down from a railing, but if you watch when Rose jumps down, a woman also jumps down next to her and falls over, yet in the following shot she has vanished, then in the background she can be seen jumping down again.
Continuity: On the day after Rose got the diamond she and Jack talk a walk on the deck. From the light on the deck you can tell that the sun is still fairly high up. When the camera angle changes and we see them from behind the deck is in the dark, and the sun is falling in almost horizontal. When they sit down to look at Jack's drawings the sun is higher again.
