Facts


Jan 2001
The people that were the first to see Titanic in the screenings in various theaters in the US thought they were seeing "Baby's Day Out 2" which was the movie being advertised.
Mar 2001
Movie: The French Bulldog that was to lead Leo and Kate to the floating board was "adopted" by James Cameron after the shoot.

History: The Panama Canal was constructed with Titanic in mind. Meaning, when the canal was built they used Titanic as the "model" ship that would be passing through her gates. Everything was created so that even the largest ship in the world could utilize the canal.

May 2001
James Cameron carried Don Lynch's "Titanic: An Illustrated History" book around with him throughout the filming of Titanic. He also took it on his deep dive to the wreck.
Oct/Nov 2001
Titanic boasted 4 elevators: 3 in first class and 1 in second class. She was the first ship to have an elevator for second class.
Dec/Jan 2002
Titanic moved twice her length, reaching to the tune of 12 knots before coming to a complete stop by six anchor chains and 2 piles of cable drag chains that weighed 80 tons each.
Feb/Mar 2002
If placed upright, the Titanic would have being taller than any of the buildings of her day. At 885 feet, she would have towered over the Washington Monument (555 ft), the Woolworth Building in New York (750 ft), and even the Grand Pyramid in Egypt (451 ft). To give an idea of how long 885 feet is you can line up 22 motor homes (40 ft long) or four 747 airplanes (231 ft long) to equal Titanic. Her height from the keel to the top of the funnels was 175 feet. Compare that to the Statue of Liberty at 151 ft from base to torch.
