Overview

The son of American steel tycoon Nathan Hockley in 1912, Caledon Hockley is on the maiden voyage of the RMS Titanic from Southampton, England, to New York City in order to marry his 17-year-old fiancée, Rose DeWitt Bukater. Rose does not want the marriage and only considers Hockley as a friend, but not a suitable husband. But Hockley either is oblivious to this or chooses to ignore it only for personal gain. It has been suggested that Industrialist be merged into this article or section. ... 1912 (MCMXII) was a leap year starting on Monday in the Gregorian calendar (or a leap year starting on Tuesday in the 13-day-slower Julian calendar). ...

But his ignorance reaches a point that drives Rose to consider committing suicide by jumping into the freezing water one night, only to be rescued by a young and friendly third-class boy named Jack Dawson. Believing a little white lie from Rose that she fell over and was rescued by Jack, the ungrateful Hockley only invites Jack to dine with him ( He also gives Jack a 20$ ) and the other first-class passengers the next night after being advised by Rose and Archibald Gracie. In order to seal his relationship with Rose, Hockley later presents his fiancée with a rare diamond necklace that he purchased as a wedding gift: Le Coeur de la Mer (The Heart of the Ocean). Jack Dawson (1892 — 15 April 1912) is the fictional hero of James Camerons 1997 blockbuster Titanic. ... Archibald Gracie Colonel Archibald Gracie IV (January 17, 1859 - December 4, 1912) was an American writer, amateur historian, real estate investor, and survivor of the sinking of the RMS Titanic. ...


However, the next night, after the dinner, Hockley is informed by his bodyguard/valet Spicer Lovejoy that Rose is in a third-class party with Jack. The next morning, Hockley displays his ridiculously short and violent temper when he warns Rose never to behave like that again and honor him like a wife in practice if not yet by law. Spicer Lovejoy (1850 — 15 April 1912) was a fictional character in James Camerons 1997 blockbuster Titanic. ...


But later on, Hockley discovers a drawing of a nude Rose a note from her in the diamond safe which reads: "Darling, now you can keep both of us locked up in your safe. Love, Rose". Realizing that he has lost Rose to Jack, Hockley gets even by having Lovejoy hide the diamond and tell the officers that it has been stolen. When Jack and Rose finally return to Hockley's room to inform them of the iceberg collision, Lovejoy plants the diamond inside Jack's pocket and Hockley has the officers search Jack, leading them to believe that Jack has attempted to rob Hockley, and they handcuff Jack in the Master-at-Arms' office. To complete his revenge, Hockley then orders Lovejoy to kill Jack when the time is right. But unknown to Hockley, Lovejoy prefers not to shoot Jack and instead punches him in the stomach ("Compliments of Mr. Caledon Hockley.")


Afterwards, Hockley, Lovejoy, Rose and her mother, Ruth, prepare to get onto the lifeboats, but Rose defies her mother and leaves to free Jack. Hockley, unaware that Lovejoy has spared Jack, attempts to stop Rose, but she spits in his eye and escapes his grip. Hockley then orders Lovejoy to search for Rose while he organizes their way off the ship. He manages to bribe First Officer William Murdoch, but refuses to get onto the lifeboat when Lovejoy claims to have found Rose with Jack at the last minute. Fuming, Hockley leaves to get Rose. William McMaster Murdoch Lieutenant William McMaster Murdoch, RNR (February 28, 1873 - April 15, 1912) was RMS Titanics First Officer, and was one of more than 1,500 people who died when the luxury liner sank in the Atlantic in 1912. ...


Hockley and Lovejoy find Rose and reluctantly team up with Jack to make her get onto the lifeboat. He manages to do so by promising to take Jack with him on the lifeboat he bribed his way into. Rose accepts, but finds herself unable to separate herself from Jack, and jumps back onto the ship.


Hockley and Lovejoy find Rose and Jack hugging each other in the hallway, and as they leave, Hockley, unable to cope with the fact that he has lost Rose to Jack, completely loses his mind and chases Jack and Rose down into the flooded floors of the ship, shooting at them with Lovejoy's gun all the while. He then realizes that he put his coat on Rose earlier on to keep her warm, the coat in which he had put the diamond and some money. No longer concerned, Hockley orders Lovejoy to kill both Jack and Rose and retrieve the diamond and money. Lovejoy reluctantly goes along with it (he calls Hockley a bastard behind his back), but is unable to defeat Jack in the fight that ensues.


Meanwhile, Hockley goes back up and sees that Murdoch has gone mad and is threatening to shoot any man who tries to get onto a lifeboat. Murdoch then throws Hockley's money in his face, and accidentally shoots and kills Jack's friend, Tommy Ryan. Ashamed, Murdoch then kills himself. With an obstacle-free path, Hockley cheats his way onto the last lifeboat by pretending to look after an abandoned girl. Although Hockley comes close to drowning when the water catches up with the lifeboat, he and the others manage to cut the boat free and row away from the disaster.


(In a deleted scene, Hockley actually kills Fabrizio De Rossi by clubbing him in the head with an oar as he, and others in the water, attempted to climb into his lifeboat. Fabrizio, in his dying breaths, explained that he had to get to America, and Hockley sarcastically pointed and said "It's that way!" The scene was taken out, however, because director James Cameron felt he had already proven himself as a villain and didn't want to overdo it.) Titanic is a 1997 dramatic movie released by Paramount Pictures and 20th Century Fox. ... James Cameron (born August 16, 1954) is a three-time Academy Award winning Canadian-American film director noted for his action/science fiction films, which are often extremely successful financially. ...


Hours later, after the RMS Carpathia has rescued the survivors, Hockley searches the Carpathia for Rose, but is unsuccessful (in reality, he passed within a few feet of her, but she chose not to reveal herself). Depressed, Hockley gives up, and starts a new life when the Carpathia reaches New York City. In the meantime, Hockley's father files a claim for the Heart of the Ocean, believed to have gone down with the Titanic, under the conditions of absolute secrecy (the diamond was actually carried off the ship by Rose, who didn't realize its presence until her arrival). RMS Carpathia The RMS Carpathia was a Cunard Line transatlantic passenger steamship built by Swan Hunter & Wigham Richardson. ...


According to Old Rose's story to Brock Lovett, Hockley marries another woman and inherits his family's millions, but never gets over the losses of Rose and Lovejoy (who perished on the ship after his encounter with Jack). Unfortunately for Hockley, the Wall Street Market Crash of 1929 ruins him and he is forced to declare bankruptcy. Hockley then commits suicide by shooting himself in the mouth.
