I watched the '96 miniseries not too long ago (whether I find it dreadful or not is of no importance). I noticed that Benjamin Guggenheim and Madam Aubert are both introduced at the very beginning along with the Strauses, etc. But then that's it. You never see Guggenheim again. Not even a "we are dressed in our best" line that they could have easily crammed in there along with all the other last minute historical choppiness. I just found it strange that they would bother giving us a little back story on Guggenheim, and then just forget about him entirely.
