Trivia

Christopher Reeve's performance and characterization was partially inspired by Charles Lindbergh. Reeve once said: "To a certain extent I was thinking of him. The idea of a man who is capable of great acts of heroism without any self awareness, amazes me. He was a man who'd be likely to say, 'well, then I flew the Atlantic, a lot of people met me at the airport and then I went to the Ambassador's house for dinner...'. He had a flare for understatement". See more »

Goofs

The Boeing Stearman plane used in the film had his maiden flight in 1936. It can't have flown in the early 1920s. See more »

Quotes

Moravia: [on the phone] I think that someday the world will be entirely populated with bureaucrats such as yourself because the real people will do away with themselves out of frustration!

Was An Interesting Change
11 May 2006 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Watching Christopher Reeve play totally against type. After years of playing a mild mannered, hero type, He decides to play the anti-hero. The Reeves and Arquette are an unlikely pairing. At first, her character appears to have no redeeming qualities whatsoever. Reeves does a good job playing the irritated grownup with a spoiled brat.

This looks like a good TV movie, made for the small screen. However, the movie has some heart felt moments. And, it is worth watching, if for no other reason, to watch Reeve not play Superman. This is one of Reeve's best "non Superman" performances; if only it could have been in a better picture. But, This movie does have some pretty good moments.
