Trivia: When this film was made, many of the original, Russian crew members involved in this historic incident were very upset about the submarine crew being portrayed as drunkards. Oddly enough, one of the promotional items given out at premieres and to executives was a silver K-19 vodka flask.

Trivia: In real life, the K-19 was never nick-named "The Widowmaker," and its cursed history was entirely fictional, fabricated for the film. After the fact of the nuclear meltdown, the Soviet military actually nick-named the K-19 "Hiroshima," alluding to the first city ever destroyed by a nuclear weapon.
