It would't have changed a thing. Think about it, it was in April when it was still cold in the water that the ship sank during the night. Both Jack and Rose was helplessly trow'n into the icy water with no light whats so ever that could have helped them and with no warm cloths to keep them warm. it is also important to know that it was only Rose that had on a life vest and Jack did't. They fought so hard to stay warm so they could survive and you expect them to share an broken door that can easily sink with two on top of it? Jack knew that they both would have died if they shared so he helplessly forced the love of his life to get on while he stayed in the water to sacrifice himself for her. He even said that he wanted her to live for them both and that she must promise him that she would and she did. Told so by the real Rose Calvert formerly Rose Dawson (Titanic) i have also read and watch all the documentary's about Titanic so i'm pretty sure that it would't have changed a thing. its over 100 years ago and things where different back then and it is and probably always will be a mystery that Titanic sank as well.

but the water is cold... and the water came up from the wooden board... so you could say if jack stayed at the wooden board, both him and rose would die even if the rescuers would come back

Even if Jack could’ve survived in the movie they didn’t want him to because then the movie would be a lot more sad and emotional and heart touching.

It is true that they can both fit, but if they did go on the door together they would freeze to death even if a tiny bit of the freezing water was touching them because of the freezing air and them touching the water for a long amount of time.

Well yeah that could be possible... But also there's another option... If Rose was rescued earlier from that little boat instead of jumping back to Titanic Jack would had the floating door for himself and not for Rose... Then another boat would come back and rescue him and the two lovers could meet each other next morning but noooo.... Let's let Jack die!
'factfeeder777' 7 days ago
Would the movie have made the impact that it made had Jack lived? Sometimes sad movie endings make greater impacts when it grips your emotions and that's exactly what James Cameron wanted, to capture the audience's emotions. The people that still complain about Jack's death and calling the movie bad just because Jack died, are just the people who don't want to accept that it is actually the greatest movie ever made and that the movie had impacted their lives emotionally.. and that's a great reputation Titanic has. Also the door these two guys were climbing on looks much lighter than the door from the movie.
'virusmaker506' 1 week ago
That’s a great bust guys and honestly we all knew there was a way he could’ve lived...... but that water was deathly cold and he had already been in it long enough to die of hypothermia before her even if he got on. Plus, in a near death experience like that I don’t think they would’ve considered the life jacket
for one IT'S NOT ROSE'S FAULT IF U HEARD JACK SAY TO ROSE "get on" so there for not his fault

But in the movie they wouldn't have had enough time to do this plan. The water was freezing it was really cold. How do I know because I have been to a place were they had the exact same water in a tub for people to see how long they could keep their hands in the water the people on the titanic died in.

I never liked Titanic because of how chick flick it was especially because of the end so all of you that wasted your money on it to be a 2nd gross film-- I am laughing at you. Especially how they managed to prove their theory on Jack surviving if only Rose had shared the door. it work and they both managed to get on the door with the life jacket... and Jack could have lived. But I never cared for the movie, so there's that.

They should redo this with two people around the same weight as the characters, a door exactly like the one in the movie, and freezing cold water. Do it properly myth busters lol.

For people without common sense, Jack and Rose's weight could've flipped the door because of bouyance AND if you're thinking that Jack could've went up to the door with Rose and tried to balance their weight, They couldnt have cause like they say, The Coldness of the Water is like a thousand knives, If you were there you wouldn't have the strength.
