Corrected entry: The lifejackets in the movie have the wrong number of cork pieces. In real life each side had six pieces but in the movie there are twelve.
Corrected entry: When the water breaks into the bridge, Captain Smith is standing next to the wheel. In the next shot he's been replaced by his stunt double.
Corrected entry: Throughout the film the ladies are shown with immaculate make-up. No respectable ladies wore make-up then - it was mainly used by prostitutes.
Corrected entry: The string quartet plays the American version of "Nearer My God To Thee," not the British version.
Corrected entry: Pay close attention to the scene as Rose gets out of the car and says, "So this is the ship they say is unsinkable?" Cal (behind her) immediately says, "this ship is unsinkable. God himself could not sink this ship." Right after Cal says the word "ship", his lips continue moving as if talking and further elaborating on the subject, but we hear no words come out.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Rose is sitting in front of her vanity mirror after Jack saves her life, Cal bestows upon her the 16-carat Heart of the Ocean necklace. He drapes the necklace around her neck but never actually fastens it (the camera's on him the whole time), yet it stays in place even as Rose touches the diamond and runs her fingers across the chain. A 16-carat diamond would slide right off someone's neck if it were not properly fastened.
Corrected entry: 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.
Corrected entry: When Rose is arriving in New York half asleep, she looks at the Statue of Liberty, which is the same colour as now (green). But if you visit the Statue of Liberty, you'll find a plate telling you that the original color was brown, and it took over 35 years for it to change colour. The Statue of Liberty was placed there in 1886, so in 1912 it should have still been partly brown.
