The Titanic cameo was kinda worth it to me; it's still nice to see her, even if it's in a weird movie like this one, Ghostbusters 2, or Time Bandits.

It's good that people remember the Titanic and still make references to her in modern culture.

By the way, what store did you see it on sale at, CM1971, where not a single copy was sold?

I got my Blu-Ray copy at Target for $22.

Thomas Andrews -
And to think they showed THAT moving picture on the ship I designed ! ?
It is utterly disgraceful to me and to the Titanic !
I am utterly ashamed they had the confounded audacity to show THAT movie in the first place !

J. Bruce Ismay -
Don't blame me.
It was the Purser's idea for entertainment !
I was just a passenger !

Rose Dewitt-Bukater and Caledon Hockley -
We are both unanimous in our opinion ..........for a change.
We both know of a much better ''Titanic Moving Picture '' .

Yeah, Queen Victoria died in 1901, a decade before the Titanic was even built.
Yeah, and Edward VII became King of England in 1901.
And he died in 1910, two years before Titanic even went to sea.
And George V ruled from 1910 to 1936.
And The Rest Of The Story is George VI (1936-1952) and Elizabeth II (1952-Present)

The coronation of Edward VII was noted in America as well ;)

If you will pardon me for the intrusion of a bit of levity in posting this ancient bit of American humor :

Phone call to the local tobacco emporium.,:
Caller : ''Do you have Prince Albert in the can ? ''
Tobacco store clerk : ''Why, Yes ! We certainly do.! ''
Caller : ''Well.....Why don't you let him out ? ''

Not yet, but it looks so far maybe 1 or 2 have sold now, but like I said it will probably end up in a bargain bin or something along those lines.

You forgot to tell me the name of the store where it was on sale and barely sold.
Oh it was F.Y.E.
Retail price was $25.99, on sale for $22.99 (Blu-Ray DVD Digital Download). Usually they keep their prices a little higher than other retail stores for some time. Unless sales are low, which usually results in bringing it down to competitors prices. Also, as of today no reviews on their website.

There is also a scene in the film in which Watson is tied up in the reciprocating engine room.

I wonder if they filmed that in a real location or if it's CGI.

Are there still reciprocating engines left in the world?

I think 1958's A Night to Remember and the 1943 German film used reciprocating engines in factories for the engine room scenes and Cameron's film used a WWII Liberty ship.

Plenty of reciprocating engines left in various museums and preserved steam ships. Earlier in this thread Aaron_2012 mentioned the scene you were referring to and said he recognised the engines as being from the Kempton park waterworks museum in England.

At the end of the movie, Moriarty is seen reading a newspaper with the headline: LADY DOCTOR SAVES 700 LIVES! Titanic Sinks! the former being a joke frequently spoken in the film about Holmes's shock that a woman can be a doctor in those changing times.

The Lady Doctor headline is above the Titanic Sinks! headline as a joke that it's more shocking than a shipwreck.

The newspaper can be seen in the last scene of the film, at the 1:25:22 mark.

Off topic, but Aaron the other day I found a quote in "Titanic In Photographs" (Page 92) where a reporter from the Irish Times newspaper stated in the Gymnasium that:

"On one side, a lady was having a camel ride* and recalling the delights of the pyramids-"

*She apparently mistook the Electric Horse for a camel.
The Titanic did have both an electric horse and an electric camel in the gymnasium.
