>>Lowe calling for survivors and getting an echo was a hoot.<<

Not to start any violent arguments on the subject, but just wondering if...with all those reported icebergs in the vicinity...if echoes might be a possibility ?



>>Has anybody checked to see if the infamous fall onto the propeller was physically possible? A model and a piece of string would soon test it.<<

That is, would the stern have ever been at such an angle for this possibility ?

How about Jack and Rose making love in the back seat of the car in Titanic's cargo hold? How very 1950s of them to do this in a movie that takes place aboard a passenger ship in 1912. Regards,Jerry

This reminds me... The original t.v. guide ad for the CBS mini-series featured a very bizarre photoshop of Titanic and the Lusitania sailing towards an iceberg. There's your "Titania" right there! ;-)

Another little thing from Titanic (1996) that I always found a bit goofy (though dramatic, I suppose) was during the final montage of the ship sinking it has panning shot of the people stuck at the aft railing reaching out beyond the railing with their hands open, as if there was somebody on the other side with their hand outstretched to grab on to.

I suppose this could have happened in reality, but tend to think I would have been holding on to the railing for dear life with BOTH hands.

I see your reasoning, Matt. I certainly would have been holding on too!

However, my Mom would probably see it as symbolic, like they're reaching out to angels or someone waiting to carry them to the next life... but I agree with you.

I agree, if it were me I'd be holding on with both my hands and I'd be having a death grip on that railing.

Weren't the Strauss' Jewish? I's surprised they didn't completely scrap them in the 1943 version, or made it look like they deserved to die or something, knowing the anti-Semitic propaganda...

The Nazi version was more concerned with anti British and American capitalist propaganda... They had plenty of other films dealing with the anti-Semitic angle.

The "Nazi Strausses" were turned into a third class "Bavarian Gothic" symbol of Aryan family values. The only thing they had in common is that the wife refuses to part from her husband. However, they do survive the ordeal and are later reunited in the middle of the Mercey Inquiry. (!!!!!)

Yes thanks Evgueni! Seems I knew no then you, Rocky! I thought they were basically just like the Strausses but Aryanized!
