Embarrassing confession

I’ve never actually seen the beginning of the film Titanic until now. I thought (until now) that the old woman at the end was a real-life survivor of Titanic, not an actor playing the character of old Rose.



Clearly you weren’t party to the in-cider gossip at the time.

what? it is her, isn’t it? didn’t they make a big song and dance about taking her to the premiere or something…

Think the song and dance is somewhere around halfway through the film


The ship sinks

They drowned her in the end for dramatic effect.

Thought this was a real person not an actor

End of that sentence is ‘since this bloody film started’


Awww lovely lovely Gloria Stuart

Theres a good episode of Blank Check about Titanic where they go into what a genius move it was to have old Rose on the ship at the beginning because it gives them an excuse to explain why the ship sank, how it broke in 2 etc. Means that when the action is kicking off the film never has to stop for exposition as the audience already understands everything.
