The door that was used as a life preserver, which saved Rose’s life, was plenty big enough to support both Rose and Jack. Why didn’t Jack just hop aboard. If it had collapsed and sunk, so what? He was going to die anyway. At least this would have given him a chance to live.
Letting Jack die at the end of this movie was the worst business mistake made, in the history of motion pictures. Paramount Pictures is probably still licking their wounds.
If Jack had not died at the end of the movie, there could have been a sequel to Titanic. After all, the movie has a fabulous story line that’s interesting enough for a spin-off. We missed out on a great movie, perhaps, Titanic II, Life After Titanic, or Rose and Jack Survivors.
At least a sequel would have been more original. By letting Jack die at the end of Titanic, Paramount Pictures left millions of dollars on the table.
