a few facts only obbsessed people would know:
-Filmed in Rosarito Beach, Mexico(as was "Tomorrow Never Dies")
-took over 7 months to film
-the water it was filmed in was a chilly 50 degrees (average hose water
-Leonardo DiCaprio is "Temperature Sensitive" (a less humiliating way to
say he's a wuss)
-Kate Winslet and Allie (page maintainer) aren't. (not since i was ice
skating, and fell through the ice)
-The scene where Rose spits in Cal's face was all Kate's Idea. It took
27 takes. Jim didn't wanna stop, said she was getting better all the
time. But she was getting dry, so someone suggested a little K-Y jelly
might just help. (Helen Hunt won?)
-In some scenes Digital Domain added virtual people instead of the real ones.
-James Cameron did a lot of the camera operation himself.
-Jim's got this obbsessive perfectionist thing goin, the set looked just
like the real Titanic.
-The sunset in the "flying scene" was real, they had 8 minutes to film
it. Kate Winslet was jumping up and down on the bow, ready to pee her
pants screaming "Shoot it! Shoot"
-Sir DiCaprio--"I'm not getting in there til they say "rolling'"
-The dolphins in "King o' the world" are real.
-The dinner scene took 'forever and a day". At one point Good ol' Leo
(sarcasm) points to his silverware and asks Kathy Bates "Which one of
these do I use to lobotomize myself." Seems like King Leonardo has (or
is trying to have) a sense of humor. so, ha ha ha. Lobotomy. that's a
good one Leo, haha. ok. nevermind me.
-Alex Owens rocks!! She even got to keep the doll.
-Kate Winslet can really pose en pointe. (owww-www! gives ya blisters)
-The scene where Ruth is lacing Rose's corset was orriginally revesed.
The cast and Cameron decided it would be more "dramatically powerful"
the other way. (I know if I use The "quotes" again, you'll send me a
virus preventing me from using them, right? Well """"" you!)
-Leonardo, Master thesbian, screws up!!!! The line where he says "on the
bed, er, couch" was really supposed to be on the "couch". Got something
to tell us Leo?
-That line was on the first day of filming, poor guy probably was
blushin a lot that day. (wait. did I just show sympathy toward Leonardo?
woops. didn't mean to.) Before filming, Kate Winslet flashed him. Now,
So, if you haven't hopped on your bannana seat to pict up a copy of the
book where I got all this (James Cameron's Titanic- Harper Perennial-
$20.00US) and the CD (Titanic- Sony Classical) then you can print out
this page for some "tasty Titanic tidbits" (where the heck did that come
from?) There's more to come.
And all those jokes about Leo, We're just kiddin. We luv ya Leo, oh yes
we do..... (well...)
