Movie/TV Trivia

The entire cast and crew of Titanic were poisoned and nobody knows who did it to this day


Tragedy befell the set of Titanic after the entire cast and crew were poisoned. Everyone who worked on the movie was enjoying a celebratory meal when suddenly people started to fall ill.


It turned out that the clam chowder had been spiked with PCP! Crew member Marilyn McAvoy remembered the incident: “There was no indication that there was anything strange happening… until the meal.

“By the time we got back from eating, after about 30 minutes, that’s when I started noticing something was wrong. Everyone seemed confused.


“Everyone was having trouble getting their work done. […] I also heard later on that as soon as James Cameron realised something had been put in the chowder, he ran up to his room and forced himself to throw up.” McAvoy said that despite being mildly funny, it was also a traumatic incident which left many people in hospital suffering from bad trips.

To this day, nobody knows who was responsible for the mass poisoning. Some people have blamed a chef who got sacked from production, but nobody has ever been brought to justice.
