PG-13 | | Drama, Romance
A seventeen-year-old aristocrat falls in love with a kind but poor artist aboard the luxurious, ill-fated R.M.S. Titanic.
When Jack is preparing to draw Rose, he says to her, "Over on the bed...the couch." The line was scripted "Lie on that couch", but Leonardo DiCaprio made an honest mistake and James Cameron liked it so much he kept it in.
Thirteen meters; you should see it.
Brock Lovett: OK; take her up and over the bow rail.
Shortly before Titanic's break-up, we see Charles Lightoller (Jonny Phillips) clinging to an overturned lifeboat. Lightoller actually went into the water just after the fall of Murdoch. He was either attempting to hide the suicide or a rescue. The suction of the ship pulled him down and Lightoller was underwater at the time of the breakup. He was freed when a boiler exploded and the warm air freed him from the suction, thus saving his life. He surfaced just as Titanic's stern was sinking. Lightoller did indeed believe the ship had sunk intact. Lightoller died in December of 1952; thirty-three years before the Titanic wreck was located (1985).
