Featured Animal Action
Rose, the older woman and owner of the diamond, is seen several times holding Freddy, her dog, in her lap or walking from A to B. and riding in a helicopter. Rose is also in possession of a bowl containing a few goldfish. The goldfish are seen being taken from the helicopter and later in Rose's stateroom on the treasure hunting ship. The trainer placed the dog on its mark and cued it with verbal and hand commands. Other animal action consists of several scenes aboard the ship were dogs are being walked on leashes by a crew member. Before the Titanic sets sail, horse-and-carriages and horse and buckboards are seen at the docks. During the sinking of the Titanic, some rats are seen swimming down a flooded corridor. For all of the above scenes, experienced wranglers were used and trainers doubled as actors, walking their own dogs on leashes.
