* ArcNumber: Ships are given a specific number in the order of which they are built at a specific yard, and parts for certain ships are stamped with that number to differentiate them from the same or similar parts for other ships. The ''Olympic'' was 400, the ''Titanic'' was 401, and the ''Britannic'' was 433. The 401 stamp is still clearly visible on one of the propeller blades on the stern. This is vitally important evidence in discrediting the ConspiracyTheories that the ''Titanic'' was really the ''Olympic'', scuttled as part of an insurance scam after the latter's accident with the HMS ''Hawke'' the previous year.

Unlike the Dorothy Gibson film made a few months prior, this film survives. A copy was rediscovered in 1998 and preserved by the German Film Archives.
