Titaniccolor6Some pictures are worth a thousand words, but there are some that are worth even more.

paxton-619-386Back in 1997, James Cameron came out with a movie about the sinking of the famous ship, the RMS Titanic. Cameron was first interested in the great ship, and spent a great deal of time researching her tragic history. When the script was complete, Cameron had many talented actors who could portray not only a couple of doomed lovers who meet on board the ship, but also a crew of men who would explore Titanic in her watery grave. Cameron caused quite a bit of controversy with the budget for his film, which was $200 million, an unheard of number back in 1997, but it would be worth every penny. Titanic would be the biggest move in the world for an unprecedented 12 years, and it would go on to gross over one billion dollars.  However, one principle player in the film unexpectedly died on February 25th.
