Corrected entry: When asking Jack about his rootless existence, Rose's mother lifts her wine glass. She holds the glass around the stem. There are two brief shots of Molly and Jack (lasting 5 seconds) and when we see Rose's mother again, she is drinking from the wine glass, but now holding around the cup itself. Yes - she could in theory have put the glass down, changed her grip and lifted it again during the 5 seconds - but much more likely, it is a continuity error.Jacob La Cour
Corrected entry: When the alarm sounds that a iceberg is ahead and the officer orders a hard turn to avoid the iceberg, the crew steers hard to the left. However when he reverses the screw [propeller] the underwater footage shows the right screw coming to a stop and then reversing. This would make the ship try to steer to the right by the right screw pushing water forward. thus cancelling out or limiting the effect of the rudder steering left. The left screw would need to be reversed to aid this left turn.tjmco767
Corrected entry: When the watchtower guys spot the iceberg, the shot cuts to the bridge and the helmsman. The helmsman is directed to come "hard a starboard" which is to the right, and right into the iceberg. The helmsman, however, is shown steering to port/left despite the original command.
Corrected entry: As the little boy is winding the string around his top and is about to throw it he has it upside down (pointed side up), yet when he throws it, it is in the correct position (with the point down).
Corrected entry: The whole manner in which upper class people speak has been dumbed down for the audience. High society people in the early part of the 20th century had a very refined manner of speaking; whatever they truly meant was masked with something more socially appropriate. For instance, when Rose's mother says something to the effect of: "Here comes that vulgar Brown woman. Let's move before she sits with us," she would have been considered extremely ill-mannered. In reality, she would have given some knowing glances, and said something more like: "It's getting very warm in here. Perhaps we should take a turn on the deck." Her friends, seeing Molly Brown approaching, would know exactly what she really meant. (00:50:40)Krista
Corrected entry: When Jack and Rose are fleeing along a passage the water causes a gasoline explosion in each light fixture it reaches. The Titanic would have had DC lighting, in which case the bulbs would have simply broken from the temperature differential and the water would have shorted out the entire circuit that the lightbulb was on. (02:17:10)
Corrected entry: At the very beginning of when the Titanic is starting to initially sink and things are still relatively calm, some of the guards are calling for "women and children only" and the very first of the life boats are being loaded. However, a split second later the cameras pan back to the first few boats and one of the boats is half-filled with men.
Corrected entry: On Sunday, before the church service, we see Rose's mom tightening Rose's corset. Later that day, when Jack draws Rose, she doesn't have any red marks on her skin from wearing the corset. These things broke people's ribs. She should have had at least some indication that she had been wearing one. (01:09:25 - 01:22:40)
