Over the recent years, Hollywood has launched popular films featuring nautical thematic elements which have anchored a strong fan following. Movies such as Jaws, Cape Fear (both of them) The African Queen, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Titanic have all brought the ship to the big screen while fascinating viewers worldwide. Here are some little known facts you may not have known about these blockbusters:
In the final scene of Titanic, the characters were made to look frozen by covering themselves in a chemical powder that crystallizes when touching water.
The cast and crew of Jaws nicknamed it “Flaws” due to the many technical problems during the shoot. For example, the mechanical sharks kept breaking — and sinking.
In The African Queen, Humphrey Bogart insisted on using rubber leeches rather than real ones because the blood-sucking creatures made him nauseous, but director John Huston thought Bogart’s queasiness was perfect for the shot so he kept them nearby.
