When the scene where a wall of water bursts through a doorway was first shot, James Cameron said that the 40,000 gallons of water dumped into the corridor set were not enough, and asked for triple that amount. The set had to be rebuilt to stand up under the additional weight of water. See more »
When Lovett and Bodine are walking along deck talking about Rose, when Bodine says she worked as an actress, they walk past a wall with a no smoking sign on it. In the next shot, they are in the same place, but the wall is gone. See more »

James Cameron made a notable change for the 3-D release in 2012. After being told by Neil deGrasse Tyson that the starfield in the sinking scene would not have been visible from that location at that time of year, Cameron replaced it with a view of the correct starfield. Additions of stars in the background were made for all of the night exterior shots of the ship for the 3-D release in 2012. 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.
