where to find the clip of Jack asking Rose to promise to go on?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : TitanicShack : One Thread

I feel titanic's most touching scene is that after the ship sank, jack was staying in water at the side of rose and asking rose to promise no matter how hopeless, she will not let it go. Could anymore tell me where to download the movie clip of this scene?

There is an mpeg file of part of the "promise" scene at http://titanic.sdsu.edu/ under "Videos." Enjoy!

Help!! I went to the address above and downloaded a video and I got a message saying "unspecified error" when I tried to open it. Anyone know what to do?

Hi Rose: Here we go again but this time I am getting the same message! I will have to investigate and will let you know. Perhaps it has something to do with the instuctions above the file list.

Rose: I guess the simple answer is download the mpeg player that they provide below the file list. I did that and it worked fine.

Some great clips on that site. I especially like the Bodine animation clip. By the way, if you are using Windows95 and get an error message when you try to run the clip, download their mpeg player which seems to work fine.

How did jack and rose make it to the water and not hit the propellers.

Well, Cameron borrowed from a bit of history, or legend at least, for that one. They simply let the ship leave them rather than them leaving the ship..off the stern as that part of the ship went under. It is said that Chief Baker Charles Joaquin (sp?) left the ship in this manner without even getting his hair wet and survived and there were claims that he was more than a little intoxicated at the time. Whether this is true or not remains a question but at any rate, anyone exiting the ship at that point would be far from the propellars and their primary concern would have been the suction and the 28 degree water!
