Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

Even though the Titanic had four funnels only three actually functioned. The last one was fake, built to balance the ship's lines and make it look more impressive. However, this last funnel did serve a function as smokestack for the ship's massive galley. This is why when the Titanic is in shot, smoke can clearly be seen emanating from all four funnels.

The film has several deliberate anachronisms, such as the music and "the selfie" with the Queen.
