3 Who made Rose promise that she would never let go?
Answer: Jack

After Titanic sunk, Jack told Rose to promise him that she would never let go. "I'll never let go. I'll never let go, Jack." He made her promise that she would go on living with her life even though it meant marrying another man and having children with them and that she would die an old woman warm in her bed. All the photographs of Rose that were seen earlier in the movie then made sense as we saw that she did fulfill that promise to Jack the night of the sinking.

4 The framing narrative of "Titanic" involves a group of scientists visiting the wreckage of the ill-fated ship on the Atlantic sea floor. Where do they find the image of Rose?
Answer: Locked in a safe

Searching through the wreckage of the largest passenger cruise liner then-built, a research crew, on the sea floor in their pressurized compartments, sends a probe out into the ship to search for artifacts both rare and hidden. When they somehow manage to unearth a safe hidden beneath a painting in the very first first-class apartment they stumble upon, research captain Brock Lovett is unreasonably disappointed with the results, later discovered, as it turns out, to be a perfectly-preserved image of a nude woman posing with 'The Heart of the Ocean', a valuable diamond necklace.

Somehow, this nude image from 1912, locked in a muddy vault for going onto a century, makes it onto the five o'clock news in perfect form and...get this...the subject of the painting, Rose, calls in (by satellite phone) to step forward.

Okay. So as if we haven't defied all odds yet, the actual Titanic story hasn't even started at this point. Rose opts to tell her story in full-- mainly for dramatic and nefarious reasons all her own. Sneaky, old woman.

Answer: Jack Dawson

This is a famous scene where Jack and Fabrizio are standing at the bow of the ship, where they're looking at the dolphins.
Jack Dawson (played by Leonardo DiCaprio) was a 20-year-old artist from Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin. Orphaned at the age of 15, he worked a variety of jobs. After a stint as a logger, he came to Santa Monica, California, where he drew portraits on the pier for 10 cents apiece. Working his way from place to place on tramp steamers and similar accomodations, he went to Paris where he studied art. Subsequently, he found himself able to return to his native land in the grandest style possible for one with no money: sailing on Titanic on a ticket he won in a poker game.

25 Jack ended up receiving his tickets for the ship in a card game by landing a full house (remember this movie's fascination with defying all natural odds). Where did he make the ecstatic statement: "I'm the king of the world"?
Answer: The bow of the ship

As Rose tells it, Jack arrived on the ship in a bit of a rush, winning the tickets for the Titanic in a card game five minutes before the departure. Sure, the tickets were for third class (those cretins), but they were sending him to America.

As it turned out, Jack was an artist, and like any artist he had a flair for the dramatic it seemed. Standing on the bow of the ship with his friend Fabrizio he decided to swing to the very front of the ship while spying the dolphins out front and shout out "I'm the king of the world!" No drama there.

He would later bring Rose to this spot on the ship and make her close her eyes feel like she was flying. Maybe she was a bit naive. Maybe she was a bit seasick. Who knows?
