In the original script Cal finds Rose on the Carpathia but she tells him to go on with his life and pretend she died on the Titanic. So if Cal did find out about Rose’s acting career (which he probably did because she became an actress in the 1920’s and he died in 1939) he probably knew but remained silent about it. I wouldn’t even be surprised if he went to see her film(s) at the movie theater out of curiosity and perhaps deep down for nostalgia’s sake. Ruth however I don’t know if she was still alive by the time Rose’s career kicked off. And if she was, I always imagined she must have been so angry that Rose never even tried to reunite with her only remaining family member or at least contact her mother to say she was alive and well but with no desire to revert back to her former life. There’s two ways this could have gone: Ruth either found out about Rose’s acting career but out of respect to her daughter she remained out of her life like Rose clearly wanted, or Ruth was so vexed about her daughter’s indifference towards her that she completely ignored her out of indignation. Either way, I doubt they ever saw each other again because if they did Old Rose would have mentioned it towards the end of the film.
lol Well I don’t know everything. There’s still many bits of info I keep learning about the filming process or further details about the story, etc. I’m glad I was able to answer many of your questions about the film, and it makes me really happy to know the blog is this much appreciated! Thank you ♥
Unfortunately I cannot help on that front because I’m not into fanfics. But if any of my followers would like to suggest great Jack & Rose AU fanfics, please do share by replying to this post!
I do not doubt that. If you watch the extended Carpathia scene, you see she’s completely shaken by the events and she’s looking for Rose through the crowd probably knowing all too well she is searching in vain. That being said, i’m sure she was still angry that not only did she lose her daughter but she also lost her only chance at financial stability after that. Ruth loved her daughter in her own way, but she also loved her money and social status just as much (if not more). Let’s not forget that.
I doubt it. I mean, to some extent I believe she will always be shaken by what happened but in terms of personality I don’t think she changed. Ruth was an uptight, cold-hearted person and there was no changing that. She probably resented the tragedy for taking her daughter away from her and by consequence also taking away her only chance at saving her financial situation. I imagine she continued being the same old bitter woman for the rest of her days.. especially if she ended up working as a seamstress like she oh so feared.
They’re not meant to be better than Kate and Leo lol they’re just (I assume?) models paying homage to the movie with a Jack & Rose inspired photo shoot. Kudos to the team though, they recreated some of those shots beautifully.
I don’t even have a picture of him. He exists now… only in my memory.
