The Arrow was originally pitched as a major movie to Hollywood, but no American studio would touch the project, thus it being re-invented as a big budget TV movie. See more »
When Jack Woodman and Air Marshall Curtis are informed by a cabinet minister that the United States will protect Canada until the Bomarc Missles are operational, Woodman stands up and states that Canada should just sit back and become the "49th state", even though you can see he says, "50th state."

It's a shame that most people in the USA aren't aware of this great film, or this chapter of history, as this TV mini-series produced by the CBC (like most Canadian programming) never made it to our screens. Seeing Dan Aykroyd in this dramatic role shows how good an actor he really is, and that is more than his Saturday Night Live persona.
The DVD is chock-a-block with the 3 hour film, the documentaries 'There Never was an Arrow', 'The Legend of the Arrow', 'The Plane Truth', a Dan Aykroyd interview, photo and magazine gallery, and the pilot training manual!
My advise to other Americans: search for this gem and buy it!
