Deleted 'Titanic' Scene Will Make You Scream "I'll Never Let Go"

If you have seen James Cameron's 1997 magnum opus Titanic, then you know it is one of the greatest films in existence. If you have not seen James Cameron's 1997 magnum opus Titanic, then what are you doing here? Get off the internet immediately, go find a VHS player, and watch the Titanic box set like a true '90s kid. Once you've done that, come on back here so we can discuss the deleted scene from Titanic that will make you sob even harder than when Rose let go of Jack's frozen-*ss hand and declared open season on his body for all the sharks living in the Atlantic.

If you're still here, let's get back to the business of discussing this deleted scene. Now, I'll be the first to say that Titanic needs no help in the tear-jerking department. All cards on the table, it's a sobfest. But there are a few additional gut-wrenching scenes that never made it to the final cut; instead, these scenes are only available on Blu-ray or DVD (or apparently, YouTube).

The scenes in question add a lot of context to the film, and were obviously cut to keep the film's already long run-time down, but one scene, in specific, is particularly poignant. The scene itself might only be six minutes, but I'd grab a box of tissues before watching.

As you can see, there's a lot going on here. This scene takes place after the boat has sunk, and right after Rose makes her way to the Carpathia (one of the ships that rescued passengers from Titanic).

In the clip you can see crewmen helping an exhausted, defeated looking Rose onto Carpathia, Cal making his way down to steerage look for Rose, and Rose's mother looking for her daughter, all the while an instrumental version of "My Heart Will Go On" softly plays in the background (as if we needed this scene to be any more emotional).

Some clips from the scene might look familiar (like old Rose talking about being saved by Jack), and that's because they actually made it into the final version of the film. As a whole, though, this scene could certainly make any Titanic fan cry harder than they have before watching the movie.


If you're still looking for more reasons to punish your tear ducts after watching this, there are tons of other deleted scenes from Titanic available online, as well. Like this alternate ending that never made it to the big screen.

Deleted scenes aside, though, Titanic is still one of the most commercially successful films of the past several decades. Indeed, just several years ago the film was rereleased in 3-D theaters and was, unsurprisingly, as popular as ever. James Cameron, the film's director, oversaw the rerelease, saying,

We didn't know when we released the film in 3D...what was going to happen, if people would still be interested or 'Ah, we've all seen it on video.' Of course, it was a huge hit, around the world.

He continued by saying,

I think we're forced to conclude that there's something people like about the movie and can return to. There's something, maybe reliable about it that they know there's going to be an emotional response when they watch the film. You know, if they're going to invest hours in a movie-watching experience, they want it to be something they know is going to affect them. I think there's a nostalgic component and I think there's an eternal component — which is the actual story itself, of the ship sinking, which will never go away.

Clearly fans of Titanic aren't going anywhere anytime soon. I guess all we can do now is hope the next rerelease of Titanic features some deleted scenes.
