Titanic Easter Egg - "Oh, Excellent" (Jacket 2)

When Jack sneaks onto the 1st class deck, he steals a jacket as previously mentioned. Well if you thought the acting of the men with the kid and his toy was 'off' somewhat, it is because the 2 men are not actors. They are actual Titanic researchers whom Cameron gave credit to by putting them into the movie.

Spread the word and if you like this Egg!

It gets better. About the jacket that Jack steals, the porter reads the name out of the lining of the jacket. The name is A. L. Ryerson. If you look up a passenger manifest of those rescued off the Titanic, there IS an A. L. Ryerson listed.

The Boy Playing with the Spin top and the Man watching him, is Actually a scene from a Picture which was actually taken onboard the Titanic. They used this "scene" to add to the authenticity.

Yes, Twitch is absolutely right. A.L. Ryerson had a hotel in Groesbeck , Texas which is close to where I live.

You can read about this in the book Polar the Titanic Bear. It tells the story behind the kid spinning the top

I think a lot of people know about that spinning top photo. Its one of the most famous pictures of the ship, its shown every single time they talk about the Titanic. I think its cool thought that they put it in the movie.

I have checked the film and this scene takes place TWO DAYS(!!) after the photo would have been taken in reality. Nice that it was included though.

Yes, he was a passenger. I know this because A.L. Ryerson had a hotel in Groesbeck , Texas which is close to where I live.

Hmmm... That photo. It was taken by a priest, namely Father Brown who left the ship at Queenstown, Southern Ireland. I am shortly going to check my copy of the film as I am sure that Jack steals the hat and coat long after they have left Ireland. Either the timing is out or the careless man left his coat their for a seriously long time and deserved to have it stolen. (Watch this space for the results).

They are most likely going to use real names because they can get a hold of the list as well, and it makes it more real when they do that, not a big deal. :)

1) I've read that Polar the Bear book too, and there is a picture of a little boy doing the top just like in The movie. 2)Very funny sexmag. For real. 3)What do you mean the men were acting strange?
