The piece of wooden paneling that Rose floated on after the sinking is based upon a genuine artifact that survived the sinking and is on display at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, though it was scaled larger to provide sufficient buoyancy as a life-raft for Rose.

Despite near freezing air temperature and 28 F degree water temperature, the passengers on board the Titanic are not affected by the cold of either the freezing air or water until they are off the boat and in the water. When the ship is flooded with icy water Jack and Rose make their way through the water without freezing. We see vapor breath from passengers in the water, but not from those on deck. Hypothermia apparently only affects people once they leave the Titanic, not when the cold sea water is in the Titanic. See more »

I saw this movie opening day and it took my breath away. James Cameron's fictional story of Jack and Rose entwined with real life occurances was haunting and absolutely beautiful. He is an amazing director and writer that this movie would not have worked without him.
Kate Winslet was stunning as Rose and this movie belonged to her as you couldn't imagine anyone else playing this role.
Leonardo DiCaprio was really good as Jack and he should have had an an Oscar nomination for this role and the ever brilliant Billy Zane didn't disappoint in his role as Rose's fiance Cal. His portrayl of Cal was so evil that despite being an awful person, you couldn't help but feel sorry for him, especially when despite all his doings he loved Rose so much.
James Horner's music was just as haunting and he always lifts the movie he works on to the ultimate level.
Kathy Bates was equally impressive in a small role and provided quite a few of the laughs of the film.
Everything from the special effects, to the sets to the costumes were pure magic.
This would have to be one of the most wonderful films of the 20th Century and one that will never be forgotten.
