Jamal is redeemed by Forrester and goes on to become an honored student. In his senior year, he learns that Forrester died in his homeland, and left him everything, including the manuscript for his second book.


Factual error: In every shot of William Forrester's apartment building you can clearly see that he lives on the top floor, yet when we see scenes shot inside the apartment building but outside William's apartment you can always clearly see another set of stairs leading up. Where are they going? They are too high to be heading for the roof.

Trivia: Whenever we see Forrester's hands on the keyboard, they are not Sir Sean Connery's, but someone else's, as the production found out during filming that Connery could not type.
