Watching the Titanic continues being as exciting as it was the first time it was realeased in the movie theaters, making everybody cry, laugh and feel worried, and it doesn’t matter how many times you’ve watched Jack and Rose fall in love and dying for it, you’ve never seen these photos that we are about to show you.
This is where magic dies.
This movie is the most romantic EVER
Jack's character claims to have skated over the Lake Wissota, but that artificial lake, wasn't even created yet (until 1912).
The Behind the scene
On the other hand, the thing that Rose gives to Jack when he is about to draw her, has the profile of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, American president of 1933 to 1945.
The scene of the awkward dinner
Titanic won a total of fourteen nominations, as Joseph L. Mankiewicz did with All About Eve (1950), and reaped eleven statuettes, matching William Wyler's Ben-Hur' (1959) record.
The most famous staircases of all movies
Kate Winslet was nominated but didn't win the statuette (Helen Hunt took it with 'As Good as It Gets') and Leonardo DiCaprio was not even nominated, which caused a deep sorrow in the actor. From that moment, he tried to take his career very seriously and to stop being an idol for young girls.
Just in case you thought it was a real ship ...
The Titanic hosted 2,243 passengers, and only managed to rescue 705. 60% of the first class survived and 44% of the second. Only 25% of the third. There weren't enough boats, so the total of people rescued were 1,178.
Who remembers these scene?
In the story that the mother tells to her two children before the water swallows it belongs to the Irish folklore. It evokes the country of Tir na nog, which means the country of youth and eternal beauty.
We all wanted to be part of the love story
James Cameron used numerous testimonies that the survivors provided. Among them is the phrase that a father told his two daughters in one of the lifeboats: "Let's say goodbye, until i see you in a little while."
These was the set of footage
All of Jack's drawings were made by James Cameron himself. Also, they are even his hands that appear when you see them in the train draw Rose.
Rose is one of the favorite characters
The scene in which Jack draws Rose, was for the director the most intimate of the film. It was the first performed together by Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet, and the purpose was to break the ice between them.
Production took months to recreate the ship
The scene in which a child is seen playing with a top with his father, was shot from an image taken by a photographer who got off the boat on the scale that they did in Ireland. The father and child survived the shipwreck, although the child died a few years later because of a car accident.
The hands that paint Rose without clothes
James Cameron let Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet improvise the scene in which Rose thanks Jack. "It's a very complex scene. We spent two or three days improvising, working that scene step by step before I rewrote it taking some of their considerations."
Thousands of extras were needed
The director also mentioned his actors at the time of making the copy that he pronounced shortly before the final shipwreck: "Jack, this is where we will meet." He also suggested spitting in the face of his fiance, instead of punching him with a hairpin.
The relationship between the protagonists is really good
Room B52, 54 and 56 booked by Cal (Billy Zane), really existed. They were rented by a New York billionaire named JPMorgan, who canceled his reservation shortly before leaving. In the end it was the patron of the White Star Line, Bruce Ismay (played in the film by Jonathan Hyde), who occupied this space.
Actors had to prevent getting a cold
Rose's puppy was from the breed of one of the three dogs that survived the catastrophe. One of the deleted scenes showed how a passenger freed the animals as the ship sank.
It is one of the most ever seen films in the history
Both actors and extras, followed courses led by Lynne Hockney, who taught them how to behave according to the customs of the time. Hockney also produced 'Titanic Etiquette', a traveler's guide broadcast during filming explaining the manners of the early 20th century.
We all admire the braveness of these musicians
James Cameron didn't want 'Titanic' to have a lead song. But James Horner was sure that the song he'd written with Will Jennings, "My Heart Will Go On", would work. So he recorded the song secretly, in a model with Céline Dion.
Hard work paid off
Actress Gloria Stuart began her career in 1932 under the directions of John Ford in 'Men Without Women'. During the course of the movie 'Titanic', Rose describes herself as "poor rich girl." Precisely Gloria Stuart starred with Shirley Temple the movie 'Poor rich girl' in 1936.
Leonardo DiCaprio never won The Oscar for the film
Several scenes from the film are very similar to those filmed by Roy Ward Baker in 1958 in 'The Last Night of the Titanic'. Among them, the scene in which Thomas Andrews tells Bruce Ismay that the ship will sink: "It is a mathematical certainty.
Filming the movie was very complicated
The legendary Titanic sailed on April 10, 1912 from the dock of Southampton (England) and, after making several stops, sailed the ocean at full speed to New York. On the night of April 14, 1912, at precisely 11:40 p.m., the transatlantic crashed into an iceberg that tore the ship for completely.
Let's see Titanic over and over again!
In less than three hours later, at 02:30 am on April 15, it lay in the bottom of the North Atlantic sea the ship and more than 1,500 people lost their lives.
