Continuity mistake: After the sex scene between Rose and Jack, Rose's hair is wet with sweat. When the two of them appear on deck, her hair is exactly as it was before the sex scene. (01:30:40)

Continuity mistake: When Will kills Tommy and commits suicide, the number of dollar bills on the floor next to Tommy's foot change number and position between shots. (02:19:40)

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. (02:13:50)

Factual error: When Jack and Rose begin to evacuate to the Titanic's stern, there should be only two lifeboats left on the ship: Collapsible A (which Cal was on) and Collapsible B (the overturned one with all men on it). However, if you pay attention you'll notice two other boats still there. One is still loading and another is in the water but still attached to the falls.


Other mistake: During Rose's attempted suicide as she's hanging off the back of the ship, a horizontal line of dark color is seen below her navel. It appears to be her personal undergarments: modern thong/hip-hugger underwear. (00:39:10)

Visible crew/equipment: When Jack and Rose are running away from Lovejoy (Cal's servant/friend), they run round a corner on E-deck. When the camera follows, the camera's shadow can be seen on the wall. (01:28:45)

Continuity mistake: When the engine room gets the order to cut power to the engines, the wheel that one of the engineers is turning is black, however a few minutes later the wheel is gold. (01:35:00)

Suggested correction: If you look closely the people she runs into are near the inner wall of the promenade, from the above angle they are simply hidden from view by the top frame along the outer wall.

Factual error: A point is made in the movie, and it is well known, that the water temperature of the ocean where the Titanic sank is near freezing, and at the end after it sinks, the people in the water only last a few minutes before going into an unconscious stupor and then dying. but on the boat, as it is taking on water while it is sinking, Jack and Rose are running around in this freezing water for what seems about 30 minutes with no apparent ill effects. The water could not have been heated substantially, and they simply could not have lasted nearly as long as they did running around in this water as the movie showed without slipping into unconsciousness. (02:38:30)

Suggested correction: In movie time it is only a few minutes that pass yes, but realistically nobody really knows how long they were in the water before they all started dying. It could have jumped to 30 minutes later when it is quiet. Also, Jack and Rose on the boat were not submerged in water for 30 minutes consecutively, but rather in and our of water and only up to their necks for a few seconds at a time.

Audio problem: When the one lookout says "b*****ks", his mouth doesn't match what he is saying. (01:31:20)

Factual error: Thomas Andrews came from Comber just outside Belfast. He would not have had a Southern Irish accent. (00:32:10)

Continuity mistake: After Rose refuses to get in the lifeboats there's a shot of handcuffed Jack crying for help. A frame later his fringe has swapped from combed to parted. (01:52:40)

Visible crew/equipment: When handcuffed Jack tells Rose he's glad she found he wasn't a thief, a boom mike is reflected on the porthole's glass. In wider shots it disappears. (01:55:40)

Continuity mistake: When Rose finds Jack handcuffed, the papers by the corner of the table next to him swap from being white coloured to yellow, plus being on the very edge or not, depending on which angle is shown. (01:55:40)

Continuity mistake: When the Captain tells the morse operator to make an emergency call, the position of the papers and pencils in front of him move around between shots. (01:44:50)

Factual error: In the famous "I'm flying" Scene, the sunset is to the couple's left. But at that time (April 14) the ship was definitely steaming due West, and the sunset should therefore have been directly in front (or even a bit front-right). (01:17:00)

Jacob La Cour

Factual error: Rose turned left after exiting the elevator during the search for Jack during the sinking. In the real Titanic, there was a wall to the left of the elevator in E Deck. In addition, going left from the elevators would take her to the port side of the ship, but the corridor outside the cabin where Jack is is on the starboard side. (01:53:40)

Suggested correction: Coming out of the elevator, you turned left to have access to the long corridor called Scotland Road.

Factual error: The layout of the hallways in the film does not match the deck plans of the real Titanic.

Revealing mistake: Towards the end of the film when Titanic is gradually getting higher Rose and Jack finally make it to the top of the ship, watch closely at the shot when they approach the top of the ship and Rose grabs onto Jack. In the background right at the very top of the shot you can see many green screens stood at the top of the ship in the background where people are running around. (02:30:00)


Lewis Bodine: We never found anything on Jack. There's no record of him at all.
Rose Calvert: No, there wouldn't be, would there? And I've never spoken of him until now. Not to anyone, not even your grandfather. A woman's heart is a deep ocean of secrets. But now you know there was a man named Jack Dawson. And that he saved me. In every way that a person can be saved. I don't even have a picture of him. He exists now, only in my memory.

Chosen answer: During the several years it took to construct the ship probably, or in any of the supplies/food brought on board, or in the furniture brought on board. A single pregnant female rat can be responsible for thousands of rats in a very short space of time (the offspring are not too choosy about who they breed with).

Soylent Purple

A pregnant female rat could have made a home in a underneath a third class couch and had the other rats then all the females would have baby rats quickly.

Answer: In addition to the other answers, rats can easily get on ships by climbing the mooring lines that tie vessels to the dock and also go up unattended gangways. They can also use temporary overhead cables attached to ships while in port.
