There are films that, due to their content, manage to arouse great emotions in viewers. However, when trying to get the perfect shot, filmmakers tend to make a few mistakes, as they don’t necessarily pay attention to some small details.
This can be seen in one of the most popular movies in the world, Titanic. It has become a global phenomenon and the third feature film to gross more than $ 2 billion worldwide, after winning a large number of awards.
Still, it is difficult to explain the reasons why these oversights occurred. But what we can be sure of is that nothing escapes the watchful eye of a meticulous movie buff.
We did some research and compiled a list of mistakes that the producers of this incredible movie ignored.
The Mole That Changes Places
There is a very clear error that almost no one noticed when watching Titanic. If you need some hint, it’s related to Rose DeWitt Bukater’s mole (who was played by actress Kate Winslet).
When the young woman was about to embark, her mole was on the left side of her face. However, if you take a closer look at other photos later in the film, you will see that it is on the opposite side.
Railings That Move
Here you can see a props oversight. In the first picture, Jack Dawson (played by Leonardo DiCaprio) was next to his friend on the bow of the ship and the railings on the sides were clearly spaced from each other.
Later in the film, the two protagonists, Jack and Rose, find themselves in exactly the same part of the ship, where they will perform one of the most iconic scenes in the film. We’re referring to when Jack embraces Rose and they both get blown around by the wind.
But at this point, the railings are now attached to each other. Is it possible that the railings have been carried away by the affection that this photo inspires and has decided to embrace each other as well? Or maybe they were fixed during the trip.
The story of the film is based on the romance between people belonging to 2 completely different social classes. Rose and her mother, Ruth DeWitt Bukater (played by actress Frances Fisher), belong to a wealthy and privileged class, so they must be very familiar with etiquette. In fact, at various times throughout the film, Ruth firmly insists that everyone around her also abides by etiquette.
But it seems counterintuitive that in various parts of the movie she wears gloves for lunch, as this is forbidden by the rules of etiquette. According to the rules, you should take them out when entering any room where food is offered. What happened there? Did she forget to do her nails or was she simply too cold?
A Man That Came From A Different Era
Another wardrobe oversight involves the character Cal Hockley (played by Billy Zane) during his breakfast with Rose. You probably remember this character for his extreme jealousy. That is why he annoys Jack, constantly referring to his poverty and emphasizing his common way of dressing.
But something that can make you raise an eyebrow in this scene is seeing you in a full ball gown, elegant shoes, and no socks when in reality this is an essential accessory for any formal outfit. This is not only true for modern formal wear but was even more important during the time the film is based on.
Once again, we can notice a small mistake, possibly made by distraction. First, Rose can be seen attending a very elegant dinner with her mother. But suddenly, our protagonist, who is very angry with the comments of the participants, decides to leave the gala.
On her way out of the ballroom, you can clearly see that the necklace is no longer around her neck and that she untied her hair in a matter of seconds.
