Almost 20 years after it’s initial release James Cameron has finally cleared up everybody’s favourite thing to argue about Titanic. In an interview with Vanity Fair Cameron explained why Jack couldn’t have survived, and that there was no room for him on that door. “Obviously it was an artistic choice, the thing was just big enough to hold her, and not big enough to hold him . . . I think it’s all kind of silly, really, that we’re having this discussion 20 years later” Cameron said, “Had he lived, the ending of the film would have been meaningless.” If that’s not convincing enough for you, he also explained the physics that went into the scene saying, “I was in the water with the piece of wood putting people on it for about two days getting it exactly buoyant enough so that it would support one person with full free-board, meaning that she wasn’t immersed at all in the 28 degree water so that she could survive the three hours it took until the rescue ship got there.” You can’t say the man isn’t committed to his craft. At least everyone can stop arguing about it now.
