Titanic script
Titanic (1997)
Synopsis: James Cameron's "Titanic" is an epic, action-packed romance set against the ill-fated maiden voyage of the R.M.S. Titanic; the pride and joy of the White Star Line and, at the time, the largest moving object ever built. She was the most luxurious liner of her era -- the "ship of dreams" -- which ultimately carried over 1,500 people to their death in the ice cold waters of the North Atlantic in the early hours of April 15, 1912.

Walkin' the dog.

SNOOP DOG drives itself away from the sub, paying out its umbilical behind

it like a robot yo-yo. Its twin stereo-video cameras swivel like insect

eyes. The ROV descends through an open shaft that once was the beautiful

First Class Grand Staircase.

Snoop Dog goes down several decks, then moves laterally into the First

Class Reception Room.

SNOOP'S VIDEO POV, moving through the cavernous interior. The remains of

the ornate handcarved woodwork which gave the ship its elegance move

through the floodlights, the lines blurred by slow dissolution and

descending rusticle formations. Stalactites of rust hang down so that at

times it looks like a natural grotto, then the scene shifts and the lines

of a ghostly undersea mansion can be seen again.

MONTAGE STYLE, as Snoop passes the ghostly images of Titanic's opulence:

10 A grand piano in amazingly good shape, crashed on its side against a

wall. The keys gleam black and white in the lights.

11 A chandelier, still hanging from the ceiling by its wire... glinting as

Snoop moves around it.

12 Its lights play across the floor, revealing a champagne bottle, then

some WHITE STAR LINE china... a woman's high-top "granny shoe". Then

something eerie:
what looks like a child's skull resolves into the

porcelain head of a doll.

Snoop enters a corridor which is much better preserved. Here and there a

door still hangs on its rusted hinges. An ornate piece of molding, a wall

sconce... hint at the grandeur of the past.

13 THE ROV turns and goes through a black doorway, entering room B-52, the

sitting room of a "promenade suite", one of the most luxurious staterooms

on Titanic.

BODINE:

I'm in the sitting room. Heading for bedroom B-54.
