Lightoller took charge of the port side evacuation.
The film depicts Lightoller informing Captain Smith that it will be difficult to see icebergs without breaking water and following the collision suggesting the crew should begin boarding women and children to the lifeboats. He is seen brandishing a gun and threatening to use it to keep order.
He can be seen on top of Collapsible B when the first funnel collapses. Lightoller was the most senior officer to have survived the disaster. He is shown on the bridge wings helping the seamen firing the flares. Ioan Gruffudd as Fifth Officer Harold Lowe : The ship's only officer to lead a lifeboat to retrieve survivors of the sinking from the icy waters. The film depicts Lowe rescuing Rose.
The film depicts Moody admitting Jack and Fabrizio onto the ship only moments before it departs from Southampton. Moody is later shown following Mr. Murdoch's orders to put the ship to full speed ahead, and informs First Officer Murdoch about the iceberg. He is last seen clinging to one of the davits on the starboard side after having unsuccessfully attempted to launch collapsible A. James Lancaster as Father Thomas Byles : Second-class passenger Father Byles, a Catholic priest from England, is portrayed praying and consoling passengers during the ship's final moments.
During the sinking, his wife Ida is offered a place in a lifeboat, but refuses, saying that she will honor her wedding pledge by staying with Isidor. They are last seen lying on their bed embracing each other as water fills their stateroom.
Lifeboats 1 and 2 were emergency boats with a capacity of Situated at the forward end of the boat deck, these were kept ready to launch in case of a person falling overboard. On the night of the disaster, Lifeboat 1 was the fourth to be launched, with 12 people aboard, including Duff-Gordon, his wife and her secretary.
The baronet was much criticized for his conduct during the incident. It was suggested that he had boarded the emergency boat in violation of the "women and children first" policy and that the boat had failed to return to rescue those struggling in the water.
He offered five pounds to each of the lifeboat's crew, which those critical of his conduct viewed as a bribe.
The Duff-Gordons at the time and his wife's secretary in a letter written at the time and rediscovered in stated that there had been no women or children waiting to board in the vicinity of the launching of their boat, and there is confirmation that lifeboat 1 of the Titanic was almost empty and that First Officer William Murdoch was apparently glad to offer Duff-Gordon and his wife and her secretary a place simply to fill it after they had asked if they could get on.
Duff-Gordon denied that his offer of money to the lifeboat crew represented a bribe. The British Board of Trade's inquiry into the disaster accepted Duff-Gordon's denial of bribing the crew, but maintained that, if the emergency boat had rowed towards the people who were in the water, it might very well have been able to rescue some of them. She is rescued in Lifeboat 1 with her husband.
She and her husband never lived down rumors that they had forbidden the lifeboat's crew to return to the wreck site in case they would be swamped. Despite being of a higher status in society than Sir Cosmo and Lady Duff-Gordon, she is kind, and helps row the boat and even looks after the steerage passengers. Scott G. Anderson as Frederick Fleet : The lookout who saw the iceberg. Fleet escapes the sinking ship aboard Lifeboat 6. Paul Brightwell as Quartermaster Robert Hichens : One of the ship's six quartermasters and at the ship's wheel at the time of collision.
He is in charge of lifeboat 6. He refuses to go back and pick up survivors after the sinking and eventually the boat is commandeered by Molly Brown. Martin East as Reginald Lee : The other lookout in the crow's nest. He survives the sinking. Liam Tuohy as Chief Baker Charles Joughin : The baker appears in the film on top of the railing with Jack and Rose as the ship sinks, drinking brandy from a flask. According to the real Joughin's testimony, he rode the ship down and stepped into the water without getting his hair wet.
He also admitted to hardly feeling the cold, most likely thanks to alcohol. Bell : Bell and his men worked until the last minute to keep the lights and the power on in order for distress signals to get out.
Bell and all of the engineers died in the bowels of the Titanic. The juxtaposition of rich and poor, the gender roles played out unto death women first , the stoicism and nobility of a bygone age, the magnificence of the great ship matched in scale only by the folly of the men who drove her hell-bent through the darkness.
And above all the lesson: that life is uncertain, the future unknowable So when an IMAX film was made from footage shot of the wreck itself, he decided to seek Hollywood funding to "pay for an expedition and do the same thing". It was "not because I particularly wanted to make the movie," Cameron said.
Sure, that's just what we want. Is there a little bit of Terminator in that? Any Harrier jets , shoot-outs, or car chases? It's not like that. At that depth, with a water pressure of 6, pounds per square inch, "one small flaw in the vessel's superstructure would mean instant death for all on board.
The external bulkhead of Captain Smith's quarters collapsed, exposing the interior. The area around the entrance to the Grand Staircase was also damaged. But there was another level of reaction coming away from the real wreck, which was that it wasn't just a story, it wasn't just a drama," he said.
Working around the wreck for so much time, you get such a strong sense of the profound sadness and injustice of it, and the message of it. There may never be another one — maybe a documentarian. I created an extremely detailed timeline of the ship's few days and a very detailed timeline of the last night of its life," he said.
From the beginning of the shoot, they had "a very clear picture" of what happened on the ship that night. We wanted this to be a definitive visualization of this moment in history as if you'd gone back in a time machine and shot it.
It's not a disaster film. It's a love story with a fastidious overlay of real history. The blueprints were supplied by the original ship's builder and Cameron tried to make the ship as detailed and accurate as possible. For the ship's interiors, production designer Peter Lamont 's team looked for artifacts from the era.
The newness of the ship meant every prop had to be made from scratch. A horizon tank of seventeen million gallons was built for the exterior of the reconstructed ship, providing degrees of ocean view. The ship was built to full scale, but Lamont removed redundant sections on the superstructure and forward well deck for the ship to fit in the tank, with the remaining sections filled with digital models.
The lifeboats and funnels were shrunken by ten percent. The boat deck and A-deck were working sets, but the rest of the ship was just steel plating. Within was a fifty-foot lifting platform for the ship to tilt during the sinking sequences. Craftsmen from Mexico and Britain sculpted the ornate paneling and plaster-work based on Titanic's original designs. This posed a problem for shooting the ship's departure from Southampton , as it was docked on its port side.
Implementation of written directions, as well as props and costumes, had to be reversed; for example, if someone walked to their right in the script, they had to walk left during shooting. In post-production, the film was flipped to the correct direction. The associated nude scene was one of the first scenes shot, as the main set was not yet ready. It's kind of exhilarating for that reason," he said. There's a nervousness and an energy and a hesitance in them," Cameron stated.
If I'd had a choice, I probably would have preferred to put it deeper into the body of the shoot. The shoot was an arduous experience that "cemented Cameron's formidable reputation as 'the scariest man in Hollywood'.
He became known as an uncompromising, hard-charging perfectionist" and a "decibel screamer, a modern-day Captain Bligh with a megaphone and walkie-talkie, swooping down into people's faces on a ft crane". Jim has a temper like you wouldn't believe," she said. Jim is not one of those guys who has the time to win hearts and minds," he said. A great battle between business and aesthetics.
Some of them said they were seeing streaks and psychedelics," said actor Lewis Abernathy. Abernathy was shocked at the way he looked. A pupil, no iris, beet red. The other eye looked like he'd been sniffing glue since he was four. Many cast members came down with colds, flu, or kidney infections after spending hours in cold water, including Winslet.
In the end, she decided she would not work with Cameron again unless she earned "a lot of money". In terms of being kind of militaresque, I think there's an element of that in dealing with thousands of extras and big logistics and keeping people safe. I think you have to have a fairly strict methodology in dealing with a large number of people. They argued the extended length would mean fewer showings, thus less revenue, even though long epics are more likely to help directors win Oscars.
Cameron refused, telling Fox, "You want to cut my movie? You're going to have to fire me! You want to fire me?
You're going to have to kill me! Those films went up seven or eight percent from the initial budget. Titanic also had a large budget to begin with, but it went up a lot more," he said. I did that on two different occasions. They didn't force me to do it; they were glad that I did.
Many previous films about the RMS Titanic shot water in slow motion , which did not look wholly convincing. Visual effects supervisor Rob Legato scanned the faces of many actors, including himself and his children, for the digital extras and stuntmen. The scenes were an account of the moment's most likely outcome. Unexpectedly, the waterfall ripped the staircase from its steel-reinforced foundations, although no one was hurt. After submerging the dining saloon, three days were spent shooting Lovett's ROV traversing the wreck in the present.
Cameron criticized previous Titanic films for depicting the liner's final plunge as a graceful slide underwater. He "wanted to depict it as the terrifyingly chaotic event that it really was". A few attempts to film this sequence with stunt people resulted in some minor injuries, and Cameron halted the more dangerous stunts.
The risks were eventually minimized "by using computer generated people for the dangerous falls". That wasn't a compromise to mainstream filmmaking. That was really more about emphasis, creating an emotional truth to the film," stated Cameron. He said there were aspects of retelling the sinking that seemed important in pre- and post-production, but turned out to be less important as the film evolved. It was a clean cut, because it focuses you back onto that world.
If Titanic is powerful as a metaphor, as a microcosm, for the end of the world in a sense, then that world must be self-contained. In the original version of the ending, Brock and Lizzy see the elderly Rose at the stern of the boat and fear she is going to commit suicide. Rose then reveals that she had the "Heart of the Ocean" diamond all along but never sold it, in order to live on her own without Cal's money. She tells Brock that life is priceless and throws the diamond into the ocean, after allowing him to hold it.
It sails far down to the water and is carried away, astern. A spot of yellow in the vast ocean. He is riveted by her. She looks like a figure in a romantic novel, sad and isolated.
Fabrizio taps Tommy and they both look at Jack gazin at Rose. Fabrizio and Tommy grin at each other. Rose turns suddenly and looks right at Jack. He is caught staring, but he doesnt look away. She does, but then looks back. Their eyes meet across the space of the well deck, across the gulf between worlds. Jack sees a man Cal come up behind her and take her arm.
She jerks her arm away. They argue in pantomime.
She storms away, and he goes after her, disappearing along the A-deck promenade. Jack stares after her. Youd as like have angels fly out o yer arse as get next to the likes o her. We dont hear what they are saying.

Rose is staring at her plate, barely listening to the inconsequential babble around her. I saw my whole life as if Id already lived it an endless parade of parties and cotillions, yachts and polo matches always the same narrow people, the same mindless chatter.
I felt like I was standing at a great precipice, with no one to pull me back, no one who cared or even noticed. She pokes the crab-fork into the skin of her arm, harder and harder until it draws blood. A steward coming the other way greets her, and she nods with a slight smile. She is perfectly composed. Stands in the middle, staring at her reflection in the large vanity mirror.

Just stands there, then With a primal, anguished cry she claws at her throat, ripping off her pearl necklace, which explodes across the room. In a frenzy she tears at herself, her clothes, her hair then attacks the room. She flings everything off the dresser and it flies clattering against the wall. She hurls a handmirror against the vanity, cracking it.
She is dishevelled, her hair flying. She is crying, her cheeks streaked with tears. But also angry, furious! Shaking with emotions she doesnt understand hatred, self-hatred, desperation. A strolling couple watch her pass. Shocked at the emotional display in public. Thinking artist thoughts and smoking a cigarette. Hearing something, he turns as Rose runs up the stairs from the well deck.
She doesnt see Jack in the shadows, and runs right past him.
Her breath hitches in an occasional sob, which she suppresses. Rose slams against the base of the stern flagpole and clings there, panting. She stares out at the black water.
Then starts to climb over the railing. She has to hitch her long dress way up, and climbing is clumsy. Moving methodically she turns her body and gets her heels on the white-painted gunwale, her back to the railing, facing out toward blackness.
She leans out, her arms straightening looking down hypnotized, into the vortex below her. Her dress and hair are lifted by the wind of the ships movement.
The only sound, above the rush of water below, is the flutter and snap of the big Union Jack right above her. JACK Dont do it. She whips her head around at the sound of his voice. It takes a second for her eyes to focus.A strolling couple watch her pass. He has his knees pulled up, supporting a leather bound sketching pad, his only valuable possession. Hawks it down.
A passing steward scowls at Jack. A week before he sailed on Titanic.
