The steamship that appears throughout in the film, the RMS Segwun, is the oldest operating steamship in North America. Originally known as the Nipissing, it was first commissioned in 1887. As of this writing (November 2006) The RMS Segwun is still running strong and is based year-round on Lake Muskoka in Gravenhurst Ontario, Canada. See more »
Found this to be a most fascinating film and a sport I wonder, if anyone does today?? Ned really had some fortitude to go forth and not be struck down by bullies, which obviously were in this profession back then. I believe he was awesome to become a Champion rower on 3 continents. Wonder if anyone in this class today can do as well? Its truly a workout to stay in shape for such competition. I believe Cage did an excellent job in this film even if he was only 22 years old!!
