32. The Real Jack Dawson?
Emilio Portaluppi is believed to have been the real Jack Dawson from James Cameron’s epic love story about the disaster.
Portaluppi boarded Titanic with a second class ticket by happenstance, as he was actually supposed to be on a different ship. He was invited aboard Titanic by the wealthy Astor family. It is purported that he had a crush on Madeleine Astor.
33. The Real Rose?
It would be remiss to include the real Jack without the real Rose.
Madeleine Talmage Astor was the wife of the business mogul, John Jacob Astor IV.
She is believed by some to have been the real Rose from the movie, Titanic. However, it has never been suggested that she actually had an affair with Emilio Portaluppi.
