Easy, its too much of a time killer for a 1-2 hour runtime, most films have a hard time just hitting the basics, there was a reason the 1997 film was 3 hours long
Except for the fact that Titanic would have been a Gods and Generals level flop...Objection your honour!
At one point on youtube someone had uploaded the 1997 movie but with all the Jack and Rose stuff cut out. Pretty sure the remaining film ran for about an hour. Plenty of time to add extra details like the New York if they wanted to.
Hi Ioannis,Why should it? It has nothing to do with the collision and sinking of the Titanic.
Came to think about it, was this subject of the near collision with the New York Liner ever brought up in the inquires? If not why not?
Because (a) it was at Queenstown where the exact number of those on board---which is what question #1 asked---was fixed and (b) Queenstown is where Titanic left British jurisdiction.Then again when looking at question 1 in the British inquiry. When the Titanic left Queenstown. ... Why start from Queenstown?

You could argue had the captain got proper control of the ship and just going too fast?
It helps to realize the people who actually know the subject aren't the target audience and that you're simply watching a movie.Yes this is unfortunately probably true. A bit of a shame that the public at large doesn't find the accident and thousands of real stories of interest without a fake love story attached.
Thanks for the reply.Because (a) it was at Queenstown where the exact number of those on board---which is what question #1 asked---was fixed and (b) Queenstown is where Titanic left British jurisdiction.
Quite so what a joke it was!Don't forget though that Titanic was cleared to travel from Belfast by Captain Clarke of the Board of Trade who by Lightoller's account was very strict when it came to checking ships* saying of them that "He did his job...he did it thoroughly."
