Door that saved Rose’s life in “Titanic” sells for R13.5-million at auction

# The famous door that saved Rose’s live in the block-buster movie Titanic sold at auction for 13.5-million-rand. Leading actress Kate Winslet clung to the door after the ship sank in the 1997 film, with her love-interest, Jack, portrayed by Leonardo Di Caprio, slowly freezing to death in the icy waters. Many people have since said the door must have been big enough to save them both. BBC reports Titanic director James Cameron revealed he received dozens of emails daily calling Rose selfish and Jack an idiot.
