Late in the film, Victoria "V.I." Warshawski (Kathleen Turner) returns to Smeissen's (Wayne Knight) hideout to get some information out of him. She goes upstairs to his office and, as a warning, fires her gun at a bowl of walnuts sitting on his desk. The film cuts to a reaction shot of Smeissen, then back to the wide shot. Several items on the desk have moved on their own. Most notably, the red file folder has gone from sitting under the bowl of walnuts to sitting next to it. The phone straightened itself out, and the walnuts that flew out of the bowl have drastically changed positions. See more »

In the movie V.I. Warshawski, there is a small tugboat used which is a mystery to a lot of people on the Great Lakes. It was painted to look like a Great Lakes Towing Company tug (green hull, red cabins) and named after a state, just as GLT does. Her name was the MAINE. The movie tug (the fake GLT tug) is now stripped down, rusted out, and deteriorating down in Chicago on the Calumet River. She seems to be abandoned and nobody I've talked with knows her history.
I'm very interested in maritime history and keep files on each tug on the Lakes. If anyone knows anything about this vessel, I would love to hear from you! Contact Franz
