'Titanic' Crew Members Still Don't Know Who Spiked James Cameron, Bill Paxton And Others' Lobster Chowder With PCP: 'There's Something In Me. Get It Out!'

"Titanic" is one of the most successful movies of all time, but beyond its epic love story set in the middle of a historic tragedy is another story that has stood the test of time. It’s the epic tale about how the cast and crew of the film, including James Cameron and Bill Paxton, got dosed with PCP. It’s been 25 years since that night and still nobody has any idea who did it. It was the summer of 1996 when the cast and crew of "Titanic" sat down to a lunch of lobster chowder. The food was apparently quite good, with several people helping themselves to multiple bowls of the stuff. However, shortly after the meal began several people began to feel strange. Crew member Jake Clarke, who has a shellfish allergy, and thus avoided getting dosed, recently told Vulture about the night, and seeing James Cameron realizing something was wrong.
