Trivia

Goofs

Togo's harness is completely different from the way it was in real life. In real life, the harness was the same shape as modern skijoring/biking harnesses and had no strap connecting the chest strap to the belly strap. In the film, the harness is similar to a modern X-back harness, but is made of leather with a thick collar. See more »

Togo tugs at the heart!
21 December 2019 | by glenn-r-richardsonSee all my reviews

With all the blockbusters being constantly cranked out for our consumption, it's great to come across a heartwarming story so expertly told. Once you realize this is a true story, it's even more amazing as you really can't believe the events actually happened. William Dafoe does a great job at playing a tough guy with a warm heart. You'll find yourself in awe of this true hero story and if you're like me you'll be choking back the tears. Great movie for the family. Enjoy.
