titanic door prop sells for r135 million

The controversial door that saved Rose but sadly not Jack in James Camerons Titanic has sold for $718,750 (R13,542,795) at auction.

Arguments over whether Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio) could have fit on the approximately 2.4m-long, 1m-wide door instead of freezing to death so love interest Rose could remain above water have only grown louder since the film's release in 1997.

The controversial door that saved Rose but sadly not Jack in James Camerons Titanic has sold for $718,750 at auction. Graphic shows details of the auction of the Titanic door prop.

The prop, while widely known to be a door, is in fact a copy of part of a door frame just above the first-class lounge entrance of the real Titanic.

The original panel, housed at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic in Halifax, Nova Scotia, is the most complete piece of debris salvaged from shipwreck.
