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.
