Correction: The character's name is Bronson Peary, not Perry. Eddie doesn't say, "Hugh" he says, "Peary, it's gonna be all right." There are other instances we hear Eddie say the name "Peary" such as when Bronson is about to leave Eddie's hospital room, earlier in the film.

Corrected entry: Before Eddie walks out for his 90m jump, Bronson hands him his helmet on which he has just finished inscribing "eagle" in gold permanent marker. When they walk out out of the tunnel to the competition area, Eddie is holding his helmet, and "eagle" has disappeared. (01:22:00 - 01:24:00)


Correction: Look again, it's there. When they walk out of the tunnel Eddie's goggles are around the helmet, and we do indeed see the word "eagle" through the tinted lenses of the goggles.

Factual error: The film is set in 1987 and Eddie ends up in hospital. However the bed we see him on is a fairly modern one with hand controls to raise and lower the bed. Not available in 1987.
