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 »
I saw this in a theatre out of pure curiosity back in 1986. The ads gave no indication what this was about--it just showed Nicolas Cage with his shirt off showing his VERY nice chest. It was a dull true story of Ned Hanlan who was a world class sculler--or something like that. It takes place in the 19th century (the ads didn't mention that either) and I usually hate period pieces--that didn't help me like the movie more. The only good thing about this was Cage--he WAS good and his body looked fantastic. But, unless you're interested in sculling, you'll probably be bored silly.
There was one unintentionally hilarious scene in which Cage tries to rip open a woman's shirt--and it wouldn't rip! He fumbles with it before he finally gets it off. The audience I saw it with was laughing hysterically.
