According to the Los Angeles Times, “Titanic” will premiere on Netflix on July 1.

After five men were killed in a catastrophic implosion while traveling to see the shipwreck in a submersible, public interest in the 1912 shipwreck has been reignited.

The 1997 film shows the events that led up to the ship sinking and stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet as Jack and Rose, a fictional couple who fell in love on the Titanic. Before filming began, James Cameron visited the Titanic wreckage dozens of times.

The Providence Journal reported that Winslet’s character, Rose, paid tribute to a real-life survivor of the Titanic shipwreck, Rhoda Mary Abbott. Abbott was the only female passenger on the Titanic who survived.

For the sake of her two sons, Abbott stayed on board the ship

The passenger manifest often mispelled Abbott’s name as “Rosa” after the accident, according to the publication.

In contrast to Rose, Abbott was a third-class passenger on the Titanic and traveling with her two sons, Rossmore, 16, and Eugene, 13. Abbott stayed behind when the ship began sinking because she feared her sons were too old to be allowed on board the lifeboat, according to the outlet.

She made her way to the last lifeboat after the ship went down, but her sons didn’t survive. Amy Stanley, a third-class passenger who was friends with Abbott, recalled what she had heard about Abbott’s last moments with her sons.

Stanley reported that she said she would have boarded the lifeboat if there weren’t so many people around.

On a piece of wreckage in the ocean, Abott’s sons stayed with her until they died.

She grew numb and cold and couldn’t remember when she boarded the Carpathia,” Stanley said.

According to Screen Rant, Cameron once said Rose was inspired by Beatrice Wood, a wealthy socialite, artist, and actress. He read her memoir while filming the movie.

Wood never boarded the Titanic, but she did travel around Europe and North America, according to Screen Rant.

Despite not having Jack Dawson on board, Cameron discovered that there was a Joseph Dawson after writing the script.
