Trivia

Much of the movie was filmed in northern Minnesota near the town of Duluth. Many of Duluth's citizens were extras in the movie, a large number at the end of the race See more »

Goofs

While it may appear in some scenes that the American flag has 50 stars; every flag has the correct number of 48 stars as would be appropriate for the 1917 time period of this film. View time-stamp 1:06 as an example of 48 stars running parallel on a field of blue. Some scenes in the film make it appear as if the stars are on a diagonal, rather than parallel, due to the wind shifts and foreign objects partially blocking the flags. See more »

Quotes

Harry Kingsley: You're gonna run 40 miles on fruit cake?
Will Stoneman: It's a special fruitcake Mr. Kingsley.

so cold, you feel some of it.
12 March 2000 | by jukebox-2See all my reviews

We rented this film because Kevin Spacey is in it. When it came on, my daughter (12 yrs old) exclaimed "Oh no, not another cheap Disney film!" My wife also made noises of discontent and I was wondering why Kevin was in it and if I'd made a terrible mistake.

Well, it was good. True it had some bad Disney unrealistic heart-jerking story in it, especially at the end. The bad guys were really Disney evil, but the rest of the film worked.

Kevin Spacey gives his best at whatever role he tackles, and this is no exception. The sledding scenes are very good and it is really cold - you can feel it, and so can the actors judging by the breath.

The film get a few tears out and we decided that, although we never would have rented it if we knew it was a Disney film, we liked it. We give it 8.
