Titanic

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. (01:47:30)

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. (02:29:15)

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. (00:47:30)

Audio problem: In the poker scene, when Jack picks up a card from the deck, it makes a very loud and long noise. Much louder and longer than the movement of the card against the deck would justify. (00:23:15)

More trivia for Titanic

Question: Why were the women and children ordered to the lifeboats first and then the men? Why not just let anybody who could make it to the lifeboats get on?

Answer: Though not a requirement of maritime law, it was a matter of historical codes of chivalry that, in life threatening situations where limited numbers of life-saving resources were available, the lives of women and children were to be saved first. That was captain Smith's order the night the RMS Titanic sank. Some of the crew interpreted this to mean "women and children only." Thus, several of the lifeboats were launched only partially full, as men were prevented from occupying empty seats even when all nearby women and children had been boarded. The rescue efforts on the Titanic were further hampered by the fact that, initially, many of the passengers thought that the launching of lifeboats was unnecessary precaution, as the Titanic was thought unsinkable. The night air was cold. The lifeboats seemed uncomfortable. Thus, many preferred to stay on board the ship until reality of the magnitude of the situation became more evident and panic began to set in. Many of the men who survived in lifeboats, like White Star Line chairman Bruce Ismay, were branded cowards upon return to shore, even though many of them occupied seats that would have otherwise gone unused.
