On dogs, there was Taro and Jiro in Antarctica, made in the early 80's by a Japanese film company...

LW, remember her hand "gently" slammed against the back window of the car in storage? To me, that indicated the pain associated with the loss of her virginity. She and Cal fooled around but I don't think they ever 'went all the way'.

I guess that's an educated supposition but I also don't think she would so blithely disrobe or use the finger if she was stodgy about sex. Cal was enough of a cad and brute to have taken advantage, testing out the equipment before the engagement. I also suppose it is more romantic that her first sex was with Jack. I guess we will really never know without asking Cameron.

An internet question and answer:

Was Rose a virgin?

Forgive my indelicate question, but I have seen this movie 8 times and I just realized the significance of this line by Cal..."Yes! You are. And my wife...in practice, if not yet by law. So you will honor me. You will honor me the way a woman is required to honor her husband...." But earlier in the film, when he gives her the diamond, he says "There's nothing I'd deny you. If you'd not deny me". Well, which is it?! Not to mention, when she and Jack are in the car, and he asks her if she's nervous, she answers NO! Well, that could be for lots of reasons! Not that it really matters. Jack was the true love of Rose's life, even though she eventually married and had children. But this ambiguity is driving me crazy! Darn you Cameron! Now I have to see it again! (boo hoo). I want some 2nd opinions on this!

I'm quite positive that Rose was a virgin. Although it is easy to come up with different interpretations there are a few things that stick in my mind that make me think she was. 1. Cal said "I had hoped you would come to me last night." (This was the breakfast scene when he freaked out on her.) I think he was hoping that that would be their first time together. The "in practice, if not yet by law", in my opinion, simply means that she will obey him and honor him as if they were already legally married. Also, if you read the original script in the scene where Rose and Cal are setting up their stateroom right after they board the ship Cal says something along the lines of "And when I crawl between the sheets, I'll still be the first.The first and only. Forever. (Rose realizes how bleak a prospect this is for her)" Cameron left that out of the final cut. One more thing--the reason she's not nervous with Jack is because she believes in it and knows it's right. I also think her hand is pretty symbolic in that scene. She's going through a total metamorphosis. Does anyone else have an opinion on this??

The consensus appears to make your assessment correct, eoe.

@Setanta,
How could you leave out the original "Planet of the Apes"? Surely it belongs as number 2 behind the original "Kong." But hey, there's an ape for that!
