In the opening text the Russian version of text "The Hunt for Red October" is misspelled. There is a Latin "i" in the word "Oktyabr", replacing the Cyrillic I (similar than inverted letter N in Latin alphabet).
In Russian, there is no "i" in "Oktyabr'" - the vowel "ya" looks like th an uppercase "R", flipped along the vertical axis. Also, the word "Oktyabr" is missing the soft sign (a character roughly like a lowercase "b" in appearance indicating the previous consonant is to be made forward in the mouth) on the end after the "r".

This movie never fails to entertain me. Smartly directed, well written, and acted it always brings a fresh newness no matter how many times I've seen it. It could have been the beginning of a franchise for Alec Baldwin. He is very much centered and controlled. Sean Connery is also standout.
Could recommend this to anyone without hesitation. On DVD it's a visual feast. Just a great looking movie. Wish that all the other Clancy books had been adapted so well.
