Movie Analysis of Titanic Directed by James Cameron

The movie Titanic, directed by James Cameron, was a fictional story based on the true ship, Titanic. Cameron's movie was based on a love story; however, the focus of this paper will be on some of the differences between the two classes aboard the Titanic. This movie clearly portrayed how differently the first and second-class people were treated during the time of the Titanic. This can be related to many other times in American history when groups were segregated as well.

The movie began by showing many second-class citizens surrounding the ship, waiting to board the Titanic. The first class had their cars driven up to the dock, beeping their horns so the second-class people would move out of their way. They were immediately escorted out of their cars, with their many pieces of expensive luggage being carried for them. The first class boarded the ship through the main, top deck, while the second class waited around while they were checked for lice and other diseases. The second class kept their belongings in one sac each and waited until all of the first class were aboard, then entered the ship through the steerage entrance.

Instead of beautiful artwork and ceramics surrounding them, these people had drainpipes and narrow hallways. The second-class rooms were packed tight with about four people to a room and two sets of bunk beds. These rooms were about half of the size of a first class bathroom. The first class ate their meals in private dining rooms, among other people of their own standings. They were served caviar and champagne, while second class ate what they could find.

The Titanic was separated into two different deck areas, one for the first class and a separate for the second class. The second-class were not allowed up to the first class decks; however, the first class dogs were brought down to go to the bathroom on the lower-class decks. The first class were catered to for their every need and second class were ignored and looked upon as garbage that was lucky to be aboard the ship.

In one scene in the movie, it was very clear how differently the first and second class were. The...
