The story of Eddie Edwards, the notoriously tenacious British underdog ski jumper who charmed the world at the 1988 Winter Olympics.
Around the time this movie debuted in theaters, Eddie 'The Eagle' Edwards still did small ski jumps for charity. These are usually over cars, buses, or any structure, over which he is hired for people to see him jump.
Since yesterday afternoon.
When Eddie is celebrating his first jump off the 70m at the Olympics, the frequently visible Finland flag that says "Flying Fin to win" is not the Finnish flag, as the cross of a correct Finnish flag is not centred. There are multiple Finnish flags throughout the movie that are correct, but this one is not. A more correct version of the Finnish flag can be clearly seen when Eddie's jump distance is being shown. In addition, a person who is from Finland is is a "Finn", with two n's.
