Did You Know?


The scene in which Rose meets Jack to thank him for saving her life was improvised by the two actors at James Cameron's request, and the spitting scene was almost all ad-lib. Cameron also credits Kate Winslet with writing the heart-wrenching "This is where we first met" line during the final sinking, as well as suggesting Rose spit in Cal's face rather than (as scripted) jab him with a hairpin. According to Zane they had to do so many retakes, he sort of went numb being spit in the face and Winslet started using lube because her saliva ran out. See more »


When Cal arrives and gets out of his car, he looks ahead in amazement. Except Titanic is visible behind him though the car's door, and from this angle we can see that the entire rear of the ship is just scaffolding. See more »

Brock Lovett: Thirteen meters; you should see it.
Brock Lovett: [seeing the shipwreck come into view for the first time] OK; take her up and over the bow rail.

One for the Ages
30 July 1998 | by See all my reviews

This movie re-wrote film history in every way. No one cares what anyone thinks about this movie, because it transcends criticism. Every flaw in the movie is easily overcome by the many amazing things the movie has going for it. It is an extremely beautiful movie, and I doubt many of us will see anything like it again. I've seen it more times than I care to count, and I still become transfixed every time, with a feeling which is hard to describe. One for the ages.
