"Titanic" DTS 70mm Prints

I was working on the color timing of my 35mm short "Sentinels of the Twilight" at the same time "Titanic" was doing the same. I was told by my color timer Bill Mochon [DeLuxe Laboratories, Ed], that 12 70mm prints were made for US distribution and 1 additional 70mm print was made for Jim Cameron. Of course, bearing the phenomenal succes of "Titanic" in mind, I don't know if they made any more. When I was there was during late November 1997.
