In the movie before Fanny and Nick married in 1919 she had followed him from Baltimore to New York City to head to Europe aboard the R.M.S. Berengaria. Originally that ship was part of the Hamburg-America line and was christened the S.S. Imperator; it was not until late 1920 that she was re-christened R.M.S. Berengaria when she was taken over by Cunard as part of war reparations.
