movie Titanic has taken me and rest of the world by storm.
It's a compelling love story, set in a historically accurate set of circumstances, that
keeps you riveted to your seat for three hours and fifteen minutes. Never before
have I paid to see a movie, in the theater, four times. The chemistry between the
major cast members, Leonardo DiCaprio (Jack), Kate Winslet (Rose), Billy Zane (Cal), Kathy
Bates (Molly Brown) and Gloria Stuart (Old Rose), makes this movie rival the likes of Gone
With The Wind for the title of best classic movie. Titanic
had over ten consecutive weekends grossing over $20 million, 15 consecutive weeks at
number one movie in ticket sales (both new records), and has taken over Star
Wars, domestically, and Jurassic Park, world wide
as the number one money making film in history. I am not going to tell the story,
one because I could never tell it as well as James Cameron could, two because you have all
seen the movie and know the story, and three because I have a copy of the script posted on
this site, and you can read it for yourself.
Below you will find links to various things related to the movie:
The Script - This is the original script that
James Cameron wrote. You will notice as you go through it, that certain parts differ
slightly from what you have seen in the movie, as well as some scenes that were cut from
the movie. I have made it come more alive by including pictures of various scenes in
their appropriate places throughout the script. (over 80 pictures)
The Making of The Movie - In this area you will
find a description of how the movie was made. At the end of the article, it will
take you to the Making of the Movie Scene Gallery. This is only a fraction of what
is available on the making, I would suggest buying either James Cameron's
Titanic or the Titanic and the Making of James Cameron which
outlines the entire process.
The Making of the Movie Scene Gallery - Here you
will find a large collection of pictures that show how the movie was made.
Scene Gallery - In this area you will find many
pictures from various scenes in the movie. Very few will be duplicated from those in
the script, so even if you don't have time to read all of the script, at least go through
and look at the pictures. To go directly to the pictures added 12/11/98, click here.
Character Match - Here you will see a brief
description of each character, their picture, and if they were a historical character, you
will see a picture of the real person. You will notice that James Cameron did an
excellent job of casting actors that look very similar to their real life character.
Absolution - This is
an excellent follow up to the movie, written by a fan of James Cameron's Titanic.
All 27 chapters are finished and it is well worth the read. Click Here for another site that has other fan stories.
Other Movies - This section gives you a summary
of some of the other Titanic movies that have been made.
