In the 1953 "Titanic" the main characters were mainly fictional.Were the characters Jack Dawson and Rose DeWitt Bukater based on real Titanic passengers?
i personally do not see the Dawson man no more than a man on the ship that had the same last name as the movie character Jack Dawson. One reason is that his first name is not Jack. It is James I believe or perhaps Joseph. He was buried in the Titanic victims section in Nova Scotia. The name of the cemetery escapes me for the moment.Were the characters Jack Dawson and Rose DeWitt Bukater based on real Titanic passengers?
