Factual error: 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. (00:39:05)
A masterpiece. One of, if not the greatest film ever made. Bringing together history, romance, drama and suspense this film is an iconic film for all generations that pulls at the heartstrings of all that watch it.
I write this on the 106th Anniversary of the ship striking the iceberg and you really get a feel for how good the acting in this film is. It really draws you in and makes you feel for the passengers on the ship. Heartbreaking scenes where we see young children, elderly couple and even baby's dying. The film tackles these scenes with the respect deserved. Easy to see why it won 11 Academy awards.
From the start we see a rich woman learn that life is about more than money and reputation as she learns what true love is when meeting a third class, fly by the wind down to earth guy who wins a ticket in a game of poker.
The famous absurd ending where jack dies because he can't get on top of rose, really ruins the whole film! I love the movie until the terrible, silly ending.
Jack: That's one of the good things about Paris: lots of girls willing to take their clothes off.
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?
