The Finest Hours

Factual error: In the opening shot of the movie while our characters are driving down the street in 1951, there is a post-2000, white Toyota Tercel. It's the 2nd car on the left. The car is removed from the next scene. (00:00:50)

Other mistake: When the crew is isolating the boiler in the Pendelton, the pipe wrench on the isolating valve is on backwards for the direction it is being turned.


Miriam Webber: I'm not afraid of the water, Bernie. It scares me at night that's all. You know. You can't see what's underneath.
Bernie Webber: Just more water.

Ervin Maske: Please tell me we are taking this boat to a bigger boat.

Title Card: What Bernie Webber, Richard Livesey, Andy Fitzgerald and Ervin Maske accomplished on the night of February 18, 1952 is still considered the greatest small boat rescue in Coast Guard history. Bernie and Miriam were married on the date she planned. And they remained married for 58 years until Bernie's death in 2009 at the age 81. All four Coast Guardsmen were awarded the Gold Lifesaving Medal for their heroic actions.
