A hard-nosed Chicago journalist has an unlikely love affair with an eagle researcher.
James Caan and Christopher Walken were considered for the male lead of Ernie Souchak which in the end was cast with actor-comedian John Belushi.
But why ornithology?
Nell Porter: I like the uniform.
When Souchak runs outside of the hotel to get a cab to Union Station, you can clearly see the lighting electrical cables running along the curb.
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.
