Think you know everything there is to know about "Titanic"? Let's see if you can ace this quiz.
The movie "Titanic" was born of director James Cameron's obsession with real-life shipwrecks. Cameron wanted to explore the wreck of the RMS Titanic, and he was willing to make a movie to get to do so. Cameron presented the movie to investors as Romeo and Juliet on the Titanic, and the rest is history.
This big budget blockbuster, grossing more than $2 billion, presents us here at How Stuff Works with a wealth of quiz question fodder. For instance, did you know that Jeremy Sisto and Winona Ryder were actually considered for the roles of Jack and Rose? Did you know that filming the movie cost more than the building of the actual ship (even after adjusted for inflation)? Did you know that Kate Winslet actually suffered from hypothermia during filming? And, did you know that Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet couldn't always hold their water when they were in the water, if you know what we mean? If you knew all of this, you just might know enough about the real ship and the movie to ace this quiz.
