When his job along with that of his co-worker are threatened, Walter takes action in the real world embarking on a global journey that turns into an adventure more extraordinary than anything he could have ever imagined.
In a dream sequences in the 1947 version of The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Walter's name is Gaylord. Ben Stiller, who portrays Walter Mitty in the 2013 film, played Gaylord (Greg) Focker in Meet the Parents (2000).
Life is about courage and going into the unknown.
When Walter writes his on-line resume, he says he earned his keep as a "boatswain (unpaid deckhand)" on an Icelandic fishing trawler. A boatswain is a senior crew member, not a rookie deckhand. Walter tracked the boat down by flying to Nuuk, its port of registration, so it was a Greenlandic vessel, not Icelandic.
