The characters who died in bed inTitanic are based on real people
Titanic is an emotional film for many watchers, as the story of Jack and Rose ends tragically. Most people are aware of this main plot point, but there are other details scattered throughout the movie that make it even more devastating.
The fictional scenes in the movie are difficult to watch, knowing they were based on tragic real-life events. For example, the scene with the elderly couple who died in bed was inspired by Ida Straus and her husband Isidor’s story. They refused to leave the ship before it sank. It’s a heart-wrenching love story within an already devastating story.
