Titanic is a 1997 American epic romance and disaster film directed, written, produced, and co-edited by James Cameron. Incorporating both historical and fictionalized aspects, it is based on accounts of the sinking of the RMS Titanic and stars Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio as members of different social classes who fall in love aboard the ship during its ill-fated maiden voyage. This movie have some scenes which are mindblowing and fans loved them the most.
Here are some facts about the Titanic movie, which people don’t know..
No, Leonardo DiCaprio isn’t actually drawing in Titanic: This information might disappoint some fans, but no, Leonardo DiCaprio wasn’t the one drawing in the film. In this scene, which has since become a classic, where Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio) draws Rose (Kate Winslet) lying naked in front of him, the actor is unfortunately not the one who actually does the drawing. Leonardo turned out to be dreadful at drawing, and he was unable to correctly trace the lines requested by the director.
A scientific study determined whether or not Jack could have survived: A scientific study has been conducted to determine whether or not Jack could have survived. This has been a matter of fierce debate among fans for nearly 25 years: could Jack have gotten onto the raft with Rose and survived? A never-ending debate, and a question that keeps finding its way back to James Cameron’s ears. So to settle it once and for all, the director himself requested for a scientific study to be conducted. “We did a thorough forensic analysis with a hypothermia expert who recreated the raft from the film,” explained James Cameron in a conference, reported by Le Point. “We went through tests to see if they could have survived by various methods, and the answer was that there was no way they could have both survived. Only one could have survived.”
The ocean liner’s actual wreck is shown in the film: In the film’s early scenes, Brock Lovett (Bill Paxton) and his crew descend to a depth of more than 4,000 metres (13,120 feet) to get a closer look at the Titanic. Incredibly, some of the images shown on screen come from the real wreck, which James Cameron explored many times in preparation for the film. These shots of the Titanic were filmed with a special camera that could withstand the pressure down at the ocean floor. The real images of the famous ship were then completed with studio shots using models.
James Cameron shot another ending: Everyone knows the final scene of Titanic by now. Rose, in her 80s, goes alone on the deck of the ship and throws her much sought-after necklace, The Heart of the Ocean, into the sea. She then quietly returns to her cabin. But James Cameron also shot a somewhat different ending. In this other scene, as Rose is about to throw the necklace away, Brock Lovett happens upon her, who realises that she had the object he was looking for all along. The old woman tries to reason with him and make him understand that his quest was in fact meaningless. “Only life has a price, and every day must count,” Rose says before throwing the precious necklace overboard. Resigned and relieved, Brock Lovett gives up his dreams of wealth and glory before inviting Rose’s granddaughter Lizzy to dance, to celebrate the end of his treasure hunt.
