Tracy, this is my point! At 12 years old I didn't understand this, and believed that everyone would know that she was the Queen Mary and not the Titanic! This betrays two things: my own nerdiness (sorry guys) and my immature thought that a Titanic film with a ship obviously not Titanic as a set could not be worthwhile.I liked the Beesley story line in this.
I could never figure out why they gave JJ Astor a beard and made him appear about ten years older than what he actually was.
The Queen Mary set was obvious, but it shouldn't matter to a general audience that isn't all that familiar with how the Titanic's deck should look.
