A hard-nosed Chicago journalist has an unlikely love affair with an eagle researcher.
Actress Blair Brown was cast in the co-starring lead role of Dr. Nell Porter because she resembled a young Katharine Hepburn.
I know what I wrote, I was there when I wrote it.
When Souchak rides the Empire Builder back to Wyoming with Nell, the train takes a route the Empire Builder never takes. In the movie, the train goes through Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and then on to Victor, Wyoming, where they get off. The real Empire Builder goes north from Chicago to Milwaukee and then Minneapolis before heading northwest and crossing North Dakota, Montana and Idaho near the Canadian border. It goes nowhere near Iowa or Wyoming.
At the end of the credits, after some mountain shots, there's a sequence of a selection of some of the black-and-white photos of Ernie and/or Nell that Souchak had on his desk.
