THIS is the deleted scene from Titanic which will have even the steeliest viewers reaching for the tissues.
The legendary film, which scooped 11 Oscars after its 1997 release, would have been even more emotional if this clip had made it into the final cut.
Set aboard rescue boat The Carpathia, the emotional scene really heaps on the sorrow, and will change the way you view one of the film’s most despised characters.
Joseph Bruce Ismay, one of the top officials in the company which owned the Titanic, was portrayed as a coward for abandoning his doomed vessel.
We don’t even see any real remorse after hundreds of innocents are sent to the icy depths on his sinking ship.
But this deleted scene paints his character in a different light.
The camera zooms to his face as he surveys the shivering survivors — and it is etched with a clear pang of guilt.
Meanwhile, we also see more of Rose, frozen in horror, in the full version of the rescue.
She can be seen boarding the ship while her mother frantically searches for her, and we also clock a brief flash of Cal’s adopted daughter — whose fate is left uncertain in the final cut.
In a Twitter post that’s since been retweeted more than a thousand times, Buzzfeed’s Spencer Althouse shared a short clip that never made it into the movie, which shows Meryl Streep’s character dropping her ice queen persona during a big fancy party also attended by Andy Sachs (Anne Hathaway) and Emily Charlton (Emily Blunt).
