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.
It shows the survivors’ rescue in full, rather than the shortened version of the sequence shown in the classic film.
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 slightly 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.
Viewers of the deleted scene, which has cropped up on YouTube, are understandably disappointed that it was axed.
One said: “Such a shame this was cut… The Carpathia really deserved more screen time.”
And another added: “They should have added this scene. Poor Ismay with those poor survivors looking at him with disgust.”
Another fan chipped in to ask: “Why was this cut? The scenes of Rose numb with grief is a perfect closure to Jack dying.”
This isn’t the only important film segment which was left on the cutting room floor.
Previously, we revealed how a deleted Devil Wears Prada scene changes the film completely.

Tennis icon Billie Jean King on beating sexist rival Bobby Riggs in match behind Emma Stone’s new film Battle of the Sexes
IT WAS not so much a tennis match as the ultimate clash of girl power versus male pride.

IT WAS not so much a tennis match as the ultimate clash of girl power versus male pride.
Former Wimbledon and world champion, and self-proclaimed male chauvinist pig, Bobby Riggs was taking on the women’s world No1, Billie Jean King.
And the stakes could hardly have been higher.
The 1973 match drew more than 90million viewers worldwide, including 50million in the US, and Bobby, then 55, had publicised it by posing naked but for a racquet, and as Little Bo Peep to wind up feminist lesbian equal rights campaigner Billie Jean, 29.
He had challenged her to the match because she had dared to insist that female players deserved the same prize money as men.
Bobby, meanwhile, warned that men would not be able to go for “poker games” if women’s lib continued and crowed that “the best way to handle women is to keep them pregnant and barefoot”.

He refused to train for the game, bet the equivalent of £11,000 on himself to win and arrived at the venue, the Houston Astrodome, with a bevy of short-skirted models.
It was even billed as the Battle of the Sexes — which provides the title for a film about the match, out tomorrow, starring Emma Stone as Billie Jean and Steve Carell as Bobby.
Talking exclusively to The Sun yesterday — her 74th birthday — Billie Jean told how she had been preparing for the encounter for most of her life.
The six-times Wimbledon winner said: “Since I was 12 I wanted to help equality in any way I could.
“I wanted to make that promise to myself. I knew tennis would be an amazing platform.
“I knew as a 12-year-old girl it would be a difficult road, but I was certainly going to give it a try.

“I knew I had to be No1 to do that. I enjoyed that pressure. I realised I had to practise so hard.”
At first she had rejected Bobby’s £75,000 prize money offer. But when Australian player Margaret Court lost to him in a similar match, she changed her mind.
Billie Jean knew that the fledgling professional women’s tennis tour she was backing would struggle if she did not prove the ageing Bobby wrong.
She recalled: “I was hoping it would help equality, the women’s tour and pro tennis. This was the most incredible opportunity and I couldn’t blow it. I had to win.”
Bobby had won Wimbledon in 1939 as a 21-year-old amateur and won the US Open the same year and again in 1941.
The upcoming film shares the same title as the match[/caption]
Although he treated the match with Billie Jean as a joke, she said: “I respected him, because I knew his history. He was one of my heroes.
“So I went with him, I enjoyed him. I loved entertainment.”
Despite his arrogance, Bobby relied on vitamin pills rather than proper training, and when the big day came, Billie Jean showed him no mercy.
She exploited his poor fitness by hitting balls as far from his reach as possible, winning in straight sets, 6-4, 6-3, 6-3. Afterwards humiliated Bobby hid in his dressing room for four hours until she went to console him.

She said: “He underestimated me. I was so relieved I couldn’t tell you — such a burden off my shoulders.
“Afterwards we talked about how much we loved each other and it was closure for him.”
Bobby, who was also a notorious gambler and sports hustler, died in 1995 aged 77. Today, 44 years after their match, Billie Jean is well aware that the battle of the sexes goes on. Men and women may have equal prize money in tennis tournaments but in Hollywood and other fields there is still major wage disparity.
So did she approach the film’s producers to ensure Emma Stone was not paid less than Steve Carell?
She said: “We did have a talk about that. I didn’t have the power, but Emma did ask about that and Steve said, ‘OK, that’s fair. Let’s go’.
“I admire Emma for asking for what she needed, because women are taught not to do that.”
Emma Stone made sure she was paid the same as her male co-stars in the film[/caption]
The big topic of the moment is women refusing to put up with male sex pests — something Billie Jean had endured in the past.
She said: “I had challenges from sexual harassment from guys hitting on me in an inappropriate way.
“It was someone outside the tennis business for me. Other women told me a really high-ranking official took one of the women players behind the bushes and started trying to kiss her and telling her she wouldn’t get to play in the tournament.”
But the film is not just about sex equality. It also carries a message of sexual liberation.
Before she beat Bobby on the tennis court, Billie Jean’s personal life was in turmoil as she wrestled with the realisation she was a lesbian.
She had married sports promoter Larry King in 1965 but in 1971 she began a relationship with her personal assistant, Marilyn Barnett — played by British actress Andrea Riseborough in the film.

But she said: “By the time the Riggs match came along I was not happy with Marilyn. I didn’t know who I was and where I was.
“I had parents who were homophobic. The world was homophobic. Even the players didn’t talk about it on the tour, not until the late Seventies. People wouldn’t even talk about a gay person, it was so shame-based.”
The relationship ended bitterly and in 1981 Marilyn sued for a share of Billie Jean’s wealth, claiming in court she had been her live-in lover.
Billie Jean won the case, but shelled out £400,000 in court fees and lost £1.5million in commercial deals, as few firms would back a lesbian.
She said: “It was a tough time in my life, that’s for sure. I was outed through the court case and I think people should be able to come out on their own terms.
Billie won the tennis match in straight sets[/caption]
“I lost endorsements. When I was 37 I was going to retire and the trial came up and it was so costly I had to go back to playing tennis.”
Remarkably, Billie Jean’s husband Larry stayed with her during this rocky period and they only divorced in 1987, after she fell in love with her tennis doubles partner Ilana Kloss.
She recalled: “He didn’t want to get divorced, so that was another challenge. He didn’t understand what was going on with Marilyn that much.
“I was so ashamed I couldn’t talk about it to anybody. I was so in the closet. I did tell him eventually, as I never wanted to betray him.”
Billie Jean stayed on good terms with Larry and is godmother to his son from his subsequent marriage.

These days she is out and proud and said: “It’s changed so much, it’s unbelievable. I am so happy.”
But one thing that hasn’t changed is the debate about whether a woman could beat a man on the sports field.
However, it is a discussion that needs to end, according to Billie Jean — and not because she beat Bobby.
In fact, the 39-time Grand Slam winner believes the top female player will never be able to compete with the leading male.
But she thinks women do deserve equal pay because they sell just as many tickets and provide the same entertainment as the men.

She said: “We never said we were as good as the guys. But we are just as entertaining. We are exciting.
“Guys are better than us because they have testosterone and a bigger heart and can run faster and longer.
“The upper body has a huge difference — that’s not going to change. The top women are not going to take the top guys. Period. Let’s move on.”

WONDER Woman fans have been left fuming after catching a first look at what the Amazons are wearing in the new Justice League movie.
Unlike the female warriors in the Wonder Woman flick, which hit the big screen earlier this year, the actresses in the latest superhero blockbuster are sporting much skimpier outfits.
In case you wonder: Here’s a picture of how the Amazons looked in Wonder Woman…next to pic how they look in Justice League. First designed by Lindy Hemming, second by Michael Wilkinson.

Their armoured knee-high boots have been ditched and their breastplates have been swapped for leather bralet-style tops, which show off their bare midriffs.
And fans are not happy with their makeover.
Scores have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts, with many comparing a picture of the two Amazonian tribes.
One raged: “Can someone please explain why the Amazons are wearing leather bikinis (right pic) in Justice league? I want the bad ass soldiers of Wonder Woman (left pic)!#JusticeLeague.”
Another said: “The amazon costumes for justice league look uhhhhhhh Very Bad.”
One comic critic and writer has even compared a picture of the actress Brooke Ence in character as Amazon warrior Penthesilea in both Wonder Woman and Justice League.

She said: “First designed by Lindy Hemming, directed by Patty Jenkins. Second designed by Michael Wilkinson, directed by Zack Snyder.
“People are pretending there’s no difference.”
One even fumed: "I swear every time DC takes one step forward they take two steps back."
Film fans have been waiting a long time for Justice League to hit the big screen, as plans for the movie were originally announced in 2014.
The DC Universe blockbuster is due to hit cinemas in the UK on November 17 and stars a big name cast, including Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller and Ray Fisher.
Earlier this month, they were all pictured at an official Justice League photocall in London.

GAL Gadot led the troops and stood out from the crowd as she dazzled with her fellow stars at the world premiere of Justice League last night.
The Wonder Woman star has reprised her role for the latest edition to the DC Extended Universe, and looked incredible in a silver and gold dress with a thigh high slit.
Looking every inch Amazonian warrior princess, Gal made a lasting impression in the metallic outfit – especially as she stood alongside her all-male League mates.
Ben Affleck looked dapper in a suit and healthier than ever after completing a stint in rehab for alcohol addiction.
Preparing to don the iconic mask again as the Caped Crusader, Ben looked in much better spirits as he laughed and joked with his co-stars during a photocall that saw the entire team unite in their finest.
Newlyweds Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet made their first public appearance as a married couple at the event, as Jason takes on the role of Aquaman in the new movie.
First to greet the pair and congratulate them was Amber – who plays Jason’s underwater partner-in-crime Queen Mera.
Amber looked delighted as she embraced the pair, and was later seen sharing a joke with Jason as they get ready to make their debut on the silver screen as their comic book characters.
The star, who spent time away from the limelight following her divorce from Johnny Depp in 2016, looks ready for her comeback and oozed Hollywood glamour in a floorlength black mesh gown.
She swept her hair back and wore a stunning shade of red lipstick to stun as she took to the carpet.
Amber was clearly excited to be at the event, and joked around in front of the photographers and running up to give her fellow leading lady Gal a hug as she arrived.
Gal later helped out her mate by fixing her make-up on the red carpet after it got smudged.
In Justice League, the story will pick up from the end of the last DC Extended Universe instalment in the timeline, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Bruce Wayne, who has just buried his foe-turned-friend Superman, decides to round up a group of superhumans with abilities to create a new order to protect the Earth.
After meeting Diana Prince (Wonder Woman), the duo set off to enlist the other members – The Flash, Cyborg and Aquaman.
However, soon after they do, their abilities are needed by a new threat that threatens to destroy the planet and everyone with it.
Justice League is released in cinemas in November 17, 2017 in the UK.
