Titanic

New this week Revealing mistake: When we see the dogs being led on to the ship at the very start, look behind them and there is a woman on the walkway waiting for her cue to start walking.

New this month Revealing mistake: When Jack spreads the handcuffs over the pipe, we have a very clear close up shot of the links connecting the cuffs. In this shot you can see that the link nearest Jack's right hand is broken and not a complete link, therefore he should be able to separate the cuffs without going through the axe sequence.

New this month Revealing mistake: You need to watch carefully for this as it's tricky to spot, but it is visible without the need of slow motion. When the steward calls for the gate to be unlocked to the third class passengers, the gate is already open and just pushed to a close. You can see the gate wobbling and separating around the lock area. Also as the gate is unlocked we see a key being pressed against the lock to unlock it. However the key doesn't actually engage with the lock, making it impossible to open it.

Revealing mistake: When Jack and Rose are running from the raging water that is gushing down the hall after them you can see the faces of the stunt doubles through the computer generated ones of Leonardo and Kate.

Revealing mistake: When Rose breaks Jack's handcuffs with an axe, it is obvious that she doesn't hit the handcuffs on the pipe but Jack's hand - the handcuffs come apart by themselves. The axe also bends.

Revealing mistake: When Rose is running in the hallways trying to find help for Jack when he is hand-cuffed, she finds a man and asks him to help her free Jack. She gets frustrated with him and says "listen" then hits him. In shots before you can look at the man's hand and it already has blood on it before he touches his face.

Revealing mistake: When the ship tilts to a vertical position, you see people falling and hitting objects on the deck. In a close up of that, you can see that a black and bronze-topped capstan has wrinkles in it and bends when someone hits it.

Revealing mistake: Many scenes used computer graphics to show the length of the ship. Passengers were also added walking on deck. The shadows for the passengers don't always match.

xx:xx:xx

Revealing mistake: When Tommy, Jack and Rose are trapped down the staircase with a lot of other people, during the shot where Fabrizio is running towards Jack, look on the right portion of the screen. You can see a kid with a hat on, being carried around by his mother, who deliberately grins at the camera.

Revealing mistake: As the ship is breaking apart, you can see the wires that pull people into the tear on the deck.

Revealing mistake: When Cal shoots at Rose and Jack he hits a decorative wooden structure on top of a banister. When the piece falls apart you can see that it has been neatly cut in the middle, and you also see the explosive device that blew it apart.

Revealing mistake: When the ship is sinking, there is a shot of Victor Garber leaning against the wall in deep contemplation. The camera angle is very tilted and a few things slide off the shelf in front of him. Look carefully on the DVD and you'll see a wire coming out under his arm behind him pulling the china cup off the shelf.

Revealing mistake: During one side shot of the ship sinking at night, the bow has clearly begun to slide under. There are several lines hanging off the side of the boat. The lines are perpendicular to the boat, not the water, indicating that the model was filmed when level and tilted digitally.

xx:xx:xx

Revealing mistake: In one of the sinking scenes, you can see the rectangular strobe lamps showing through the black fabric in the glass dome.

xx:xx:xx

Titanic mistake picture

Revealing mistake: This mistake, as far as I know, can only be seen in widescreen. After Rose, Jack, Tommy & Fabrizio have run on deck (after breaking the gate down), the camera looks down the ship toward the bow. If you look at this carefully, you can see city lights in the top-left hand corner of the picture. I know these are city lights because in a book about the movie, it shows a similar picture.

xx:xx:xx

Revealing mistake: Just after the Titanic has sunk, and all the people are thrashing around in the water; look towards the top of the screen as the camera pulls back, and you can see the back of the tank it was filmed in. It shows as a clear line against the background.

xx:xx:xx

Revealing mistake: When Jack rescues Rose from her suicide attempt she slips. In the shot from behind when she is seen dangling precariously her (or the stuntwoman's) hair is longer and redder. Kate's stunt double is noticeable in other shots throughout the film.

Revealing mistake: When Rose and Jack first enter the boiler room, they run towards the right. If you look closely you can see the reflection of the worker in the back to the left in the mirror they use to make the bolier room look longer. In the next scene they are running in the opposite direction, because the set is so small due to the mirror, and once again you can see the same reflections caused by the mirror.

Revealing mistake: In the engine room as the ship is sinking, the smoke and steam coming from the machinery rises at the same angle as the ship, about 45 degrees. So, the shot was filmed level, then tilted afterwards.

xx:xx:xx

Revealing mistake: Right as the Titanic hits the iceberg it does an underwater shot of half the ship. If you look closely, it really is only that half of the ship. The 3/4 size model they built was only half a ship, and they clearly didn't frame the shot right.

xx:xx:xx

Revealing mistake: In the suicide attempt scene, after Rose climbs over the railing, you can notice banding of the night sky a couple of times - that appears on both VCR and DVD.

xx:xx:xx

Revealing mistake: Notice the land in the background of the ship which is supposed to be in the middle of the North Atlantic. It is in one of the whole shots of the boat which has Brock and his team on it.

xx:xx:xx

Revealing mistake: When Jack opens the gate after he retrieved the key from under the water we see that the water level in the background is lower, but the flow is towards the camera. It looks as if the shot has been reversed.

NancyFelix

Revealing mistake: 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.

xx:xx:xx

Revealing mistake: In this scene, at the end of the film when Jack and Rose are hanging onto the railing, you can see the ship split in half, but when it drops, if you watch closely on the right side of the screen, you can see that the entire ship is still intact, the lifeboat cranes are visible all the way down the top of the ship.

The-Immortal

Revealing mistake: Throughout the whole movie, you can see the outline of hills in the background, even though the Titanic sank in the middle of the Atlantic.

New this month Suggested correction: The outline of hills are seen in the earlier parts of the movie while the Titanic is still close to the land. After the first night sequence (where Rose goes to jump) you see no more outlines.

Revealing mistake: If you look at the deck planks to the right of Rose and Jack you can see that there is something that runs perpendicular to the rest of the planks. This wasn't on the real Titanic. This is where the set was "cut" so that the front half could be sunk into the tank later on in the film.

Revealing mistake: During the first meal on board, the make-up glue around Cal's hair-piece is very noticeable.

Revealing mistake: As the Titanic is leaving you can see the news guy holding a hand cranked camera. He's cranking it left-handed, but all hand-cranked cameras are right handed. Either a construction mistake or revealing that the shot was flipped - a mistake either way.

xx:xx:xx

Low Cow

Revealing mistake: When the water pressure implodes the grand staircase's glass dome, the camera looks down at the boat deck windows, which are completely smashed. Yet when this is looked at closely, you can see the outside deck. Wouldn't that all be under water?

New this month Suggested correction: Look even closer and you will see that the water is pouring into the grand staircase.

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.

Movielover96

Revealing mistake: When the [CGI] Titanic leaves the dock, watch a man in a green jacket close to the bottom part of the screen. He is waving goodbye to 'nowhere', for that part of the boat is empty and its prow is pointing away from where he is staring. This reveals he was looking at a green screen, with no idea whatsoever of what was going on.

Revealing mistake: When Tommy and Fabrizio meet Jack and Rose at the bottom of the staircase and try to look for a way out, you can see a boy in the bottom left corner staring at the camera and smiling.

Revealing mistake: In the first shot of a sailor watching the ship right in front of the iceberg, the mast has thick blue lines around it and the man's coat and cap swap from black/dark blue to faded blueish colour, all due to the green screen.

Revealing mistake: When the cop find Rose's necklace in the coat, Jack says "he put it in my pocket" and Cal tells him to shut up. Right then, he turns his head and the glue of his wig is noticeable around his temple.

Revealing mistake: Just after the officer kills himself, there is a scene where many people are pulling a lifeboat, it falls and a man falls over the boat, almost "bouncing" - it is obvious this boat wasn't made of wood.

New this month Suggested correction: The man falls onto the boat and bends his knees, then straightens them as he rolls off the boat. Thus giving the appearance of bouncing.

Revealing mistake: When Rose is about to commit suicide and Jack approaches, their skin turns pale and slightly blueish due to the green screen effect. This happens in all the wide angles from this scene where a big part of the sea and the horizon are visible.

Mistakes

The lake that Jack told Rose he went ice fishing on when she was threatening to jump is Lake Wissota, a man-made lake in Wisconsin near Chippewa Falls (where Jack grew up). The lake was only filled with water in 1918 when a power company built a dam on the Chippewa River, six years after the Titanic sank.
