All right, heres the deal, yes the Titanic was sunk by an iceberg, no it wasn't by a huge gash, we all know that. However just remember this, the movie was made only a few years after the Titanic was discovered, only within the last few years have researchers using sonar equipment been able to come to the pin prick holes conclusion. So really its not a slip-up but a lack of information for the time.

It's Morse code by the way. Titanic's hull was ruptured by not a gash but a line from the iceberg. Yes it did split in two, that happened when the ship was sinking and the stern came out of the water, at that point it was too heavy to be structurally supported so it broke.

Um yes it did! Where do you think the iceberg struck?? It was on the side, or the hull. If it had hit the front of the ship it wouldn't have sank. It wouldnt have gone anywhere but it wouldnt have sank either.

Actually, this movie was filed between 1987 and 1988; the Titanic was found in 1985. By the time this movie started filming, everyone knew exactly how big the slash from the berg was.
Besides, the ship even now under the North Atlantic doesn't have a huge hole like that. A smaller seperation in plates and a mid-size rupture caused by hitting the ocean floor, but nothing like in the movie.

alrighty then, the ice berg hit the side of the ship and scraped it up, like morris code, a dot there a line there, but there was no huge gash there. That was the orginial hypothesis, that there was, but that's not the case NOW.

The Titanic DID split in two, but that's not what I'm concerned about. It doesn't make sense for all those ppl. to be coming off the Titanic, I mean, most of the 1st class would be on lifeboats. And there were quite a few women a children getting off the boat.
