It goes without saying just what a monumental success James Cameron’s 1997 epic Titanic was. It fused romance, drama and action into one cohesive whole that film fans gobbled up. And Titanic is still talked about more than two decades after its initial release, not least because of its immense scope and imaginative storytelling. However, footage has since emerged online of a deleted scene cut from the three-hour blockbuster. And while some movie outtakes are inconsequential, the same perhaps can’t be said of this poignant moment.
On April 10, 1912, the RMS Titanic started out from the docks of Southampton, setting sail towards New York City. Sadly, though, the ship’s lavish decor and stunning build counted for nothing in the end, as she tragically struck an iceberg just four days after setting off on her journey. More than 1,500 people met their end after the boat sank into the icy depths of the Atlantic Ocean.
