Titanic is the 1997 historical drama written and directed by James Cameron and stars Leonardo DiCaprio as a young journeyman and Kate Winslet as a disillusioned socialite who together find love while traveling aboard the ill-fated passenger liner. The film would subsequently be nominated for a record-tying fourteen Academy Awards and would receive eleven, including the Awards for Best Picture and Best Director and would hold the honor of the highest grossing film of all time until Cameron's own Avatar surpassed it in 2009.
M1911 (Nickel Engraved)
Although anachronistic, Spicer Lovejoy (David Warner) carries an ornate nickel-plated M1911 pistol (even though a non-nickel M1911 would have been more correct for someone to carry in 1912, as the weapon hadn't achieved widespread usage yet). At one point, Cal Hockley (Billy Zane) grabs the M1911 from Lovejoy's shoulder holster and chases Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Rose (Kate Winslet) through the sinking ship. The M1911 came from Stembridge Gun Rentals. It was chosen because the patent date made it plausible. The Colt M1911 started to be issued in test articles around early 1912 to the US Military. A special run of 100 pistols, blued, were made in August of 1912 for select members of the National Rifle Association, before sales to the general public began the following year. Notice the M1911 has a M1911A1 hammer on it.
Webley Mk I
The officers of the Titanic can be seen with Webley Mk I revolvers, just as the real officers had carried. First Officer William Murdoch (Ewan Stewart) uses his to shoot two passengers before shooting himself. Second Officer Charles Herbert Lightoller (Jonathan Phillips) can be seen threatening several passengers with his, just before actually loading it. Fifth Officer Harold Godfrey Lowe (Ioan Gruffudd) also briefly can be seen with one when he fires three warning shots away from the crowds when the boat is being lowered even though the real Officer Lowe carried his own sidearm on the ship, an FN Model 1900.
Remington New Line No.1
A crewman guarding the third class passengers at a gate below decks during the sinking draws a Remington New Line No.1 and aims it at them to keep them away from the gate.
