The bear cub was found by Heston in a Swedish zoo and was called Agee. It was born in January 1995 and had to be trained. The bear worked well with the two co-stars. See more »
Moments before the crash sequence of Jake's airplane, as he looks out the window, you can see the altimeter showing 8,380 feet in the foreground. The shot of the altimeter showing him looking directly at it shows around 2400 feet), moments later when apparently plummeting out of the sky, his altimeter is rapidly counting down from over 8000 feet again.

I think it is safe to say that this film will appeal far more to a young child as opposed to an adult but if you're in a good mood and feel like sitting down and not taxing your brain, then this is the film for you.
Dirk Benedict of The A-Team plays the father of two young children who go out to rescue him after his plane crashes in the icy wilderness of Alaska. As is inevitable, they encounter the usual adventures kids have when wandering alone in the wild.
Charlton Heston is the token bad guy who is out to poach a cuddly little polar bear. Polar bears are the last animal you would expect to be so cuddly and if you cuddled one in real life, you probably wouldn't get up again but it's hard not to find the bear adorable.
All in all, a great film with the lovely Alaskan scenery and a cuddly polar bear. Check it out.
