Hi all. In the movie, at the scene where Rose is about to jump overboard, you can see a red sign saying "Triple Screws, Keep Clear" or something like that.

Looks too modern to me. Anyone know if those signs were actually on the Titanic?

Hello, Per. On the Father Browne photo of the Titanic's stern as he is leaving the ship in Queenstown (the photo where you can see the stoker's head poking up over the fourth funnel), the sign on the port side of her stern is just visible, but not readable. However, if you have access to the book "Liners: The Golden Age" by Robert Fox, look at the photo on page 117, showing a 1920's view of the bow of Leviathan moored behind the stern of Olympic in Southampton docks. The sign is clearly visible and readable on the starboard side of Olympic's stern. Hope that helps!

The whole sign reads:
"NOTICE
This vessel has triple screws
keep clear of blades"
for anyone interested
