Titanic (1953 version) - This Movie Is Chock Full of Boo Boos
There are three glaring mistakes in this movie- and countless small ones.
1. Clifton Webb is told at the beginning of the movie that he cannot buy a ticket on the ship as she is completely full. Wrong- the Titanic only ran about two thirds full when she sailed.
2. During the evening before the ship hits the iceburg, the Captain is seen on the bridge discussing conditions with his officers. He turns to one and asks what the weather is like. The other one answers. The Captain looks surprized as if he didn't expect HIM to answer.
3. The watertight doors on the ship are shown to slide closed, when in fact they closed vertically.
One last thing. The case for the VHS tape for this movie shows Barbara Stanwyck standing both in the foreground and background at the same time.

How many slip ups do you want? 1. The iceberg hits the Titanic on the wrong side 2. There was no emergency siren wailing as the ship sank. That was one of the problems 3. It was not a case of boom one bulkhead goes and she's gone (in about 2 seconds) 4. And what's the crack with all the blokes singing nearer my god to thee in some kind of orchestra (come on, behave yourself director)

Ok for starters its called acting maybe the captain was acting surprised because he didn't expect the weather to be whatever he was told! And another thing its a cover, a piece of artwork, its called imagery! So therefore its possible for an actor's picture to be in the foreground and background of the picture. These are not slip ups.
