During the boarding of the lifeboats, Norman changes seats with a woman who arrives at the last moment when the boat was completely full. This was inspired by the action of a Mexican passenger in first class named Manuel Uruchurtu, who did the same thing to a woman from second class who was refused a seat on the lifeboat. After he gave up his seat to her, he asked her to travel to Mexico, if she survived, and tell his wife what happened. His body was never found. See more »

I am a Barbara Stanwyck fan first and foremost. I have never seen her make a false move on film. I could name several films that were Oscar-worthy for Barbara, this is definitely near the top. Titanic is an excellent film. It is taut and to the point. No fluff, just substance. Knowing that all of the family won't survive is heart-wrenching. The ending is poignant and ironic and the life lessons are clear. There are surprises at every turn. Everyone in the film turns in top notch performances. I was just simply blown away! They definitely don't make them like this anymore. Rent it, buy it or check it out at your local library, but see it!
