Titanic Poster for the 2012 3-D re-release of the film

Titanic (1997)

Director: James Cameron


A seventeen-year-old aristocrat, expecting to be married to a rich claimant by her mother, falls in love with a kind but poor artist aboard the luxurious, ill-fated R.M.S. Titanic.


  1. The first film to be released on video (DVD/VHS) while it was still being shown in theaters.
  2. Was #1 at the U.S. box office for a record fifteen consecutive weeks, from 19 December 1997 to 2 April 1998.
  3. For the safety of the stuntmen, most of the props were made of foam rubber.
  4. James Cameron went on the dives to the real Titanic himself, and found it an overwhelming emotional experience to actually see it. He ended up spending more time with the ship than its living passengers did.
  5. Paramount had to send out replacement reels to theaters who had literally worn out their copies.
  6. Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet committed to the film even before the script was written, on the basis only of a 165-page outline James Cameron had written.
  7. The elderly couple seen hugging on the bed while water floods their room were the owners of Macy's department store in New York, Ida and Isidor Straus, both of whom died on the Titanic. Ida was offered a seat on a lifeboat but refused so that she could stay with her husband, saying, "As we have lived together, so we shall die together." There was a scene filmed that depicted this moment but was cut from the final version. In this film it is Rose who states "where you go, I go" but it was actually Ida who says this when refusing a lifeboat without her husband.
