Did You See the Movie?

If you didn't see Titanic, the movie, you are one of a few. It was very, VERY expensive to make, but it has earned more than $1.8 billion and swept the Oscars with 11 wins. Wow. Was it real? Well, yes and no.

Of course the real Titanic was a real ship that sank this day, April 15, 1912. The movie was based on the true story of the passenger liner, but James Cameron wrote the fictional love story of Rose and Jack. Many characters seen in the movie were based on real people who were on the ship for her maiden voyage.

Here is a site comparing the truth of the real thing and the movie, or as they say, comparing real to reel. For some interesting Titanic movie facts, check out this menu.
